Mentions: Exanthematous eruption (Fig. 2) occurs in the days 4–8 after onset. In the first phase small pink papules appear, located on the sides of the thorax and abdomen and shoulder region, and, in the severe forms, on the entire skin, except from the face, palms and soles. The papules were slightly revealed with irregular contour and disappeared under pressure. In the second phase, papules evolved differently: in mild forms, they became pale and disappeared; in the severe forms the color accentuated from pink to red-purple; in very severe cases the papules became hemorrhagic with confluent tendency. If evolution was favorable, in the last phase papules gradually disappeared, after which they produced a fine desquamation of the skin [7,5,24,12].
