Dear Editor,

The authors hereby want to discuss and present ideas on the publication “COVID-19 Vaccine-associated Thrombosis (Disseminated Intravascular Thrombosis) with Rare Cutaneous Involvement”.1 Sinha and Tripathy reported a case and discussed on clinical interrelationships.1 All of us are concerned that the anti-SARS-CoV-2 immunization could bring medical problems despite its advantages. There is a challenge to identify the precise cause of the medical problem in the present case owing to limited data on the background health condition and immunological background of COVID-19 vaccine recipients before receiving anti-SARS-CoV-2 immunization. Ones might deny receiving vaccinations and have doubtfulness about the advantage if they receive conflicting data on immunization. A clinical problem occurring after immunization might be the reason for the mentioned issue.2,3 The prior COVID-19 is a big complicating factor. They can report talks about the effects of this component. Even though asymptomatic COVID-19 is not unusual, it cannot be completely ruled out without a full laboratory study.4
