Livid Fingers after Respiratory Infection A 53-year-old patient fell ill with SARS-CoV-2. She suffered from cough, headache and slight exertional dyspnoea. She was hospitalized for a short time as the dyspnoea increased. Two weeks after the first respiratory symptoms, the patient developed painful livid discoloration of the left terminal phalanges I-III. An occlusion of the arteria princeps pollicis and the arteria digitalis communis/propria of the left fingers II and III could be documented in the angiography. In addition to short-term lysis therapy with alteplase, the patient was therapeutically anticoagulated and received aspirin. An ilomedin (iloprost) therapy was carried out.
