A 30-year-old male patient in general good health came to my observation for a lingual checkup. The patient had tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 with a molecular swab about 1 month earlier, with mild symptoms of COVID-19: fever at 37.6°c for a day, mild sore throat. No alteration of flavors and odors. Upon physical examination, he showed excellent dento-periodontal health and very good oral hygiene. At the tip and lingual margins, there were asymptomatic red pinpoint spots, which the patient had noticed appearing from the first day of COVID-19 symptoms.

Abstract

A 30-year-old male patient in general good health came to my observation for a lingual checkup. The patient had tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 with a molecular swab about 1 month earlier, with mild symptoms of COVID-19: fever at 37.6°c for a day, mild sore throat. No alteration of flavors and odors. Upon physical examination, he showed excellent dento-periodontal health and very good oral hygiene. At the tip and lingual margins, there were asymptomatic red pinpoint spots, which the patient had noticed appearing from the first day of COVID-19 symptoms.
