Abstract:   (108 Views)
The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVD-19) is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The immunothrombosis could occur during infection with viruses. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a devastating condition that usually involves the lower extremities. The typical course of DVT is associated with an episode of enormous limb swelling and pain. In this case report, we aimed to present one of the COVID-19 possible complications: DVT in a 38 years old man infected with SARS-CoV-2. A 38 years old man presented with leg pain. He had a dry cough and fatigue suspicious symptoms of COVID-19. For further evaluations, the lung Computed Tomography scan (CT-scan), labratorical assessments, and doppler sonography of the common femoral vein (CFV) of both legs were done. Also, for investigating the other underlying causes of DVT, abdominopelvic CT-scan and lumbosacral Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) were done. The CT-scan showed Ground-Glass Opacity (GGO) view. Labratorical assessment proposed a thrombotic condition. The doppler sonography of the CFV of both legs revealed a massive thrombosis in the left CFV suggesting an acute DVT. Abdominopelvic CT-scan and lumbosacral MRI were negative for other underlying causes of DVT. COVID-19 is associated with the classical syndrome named disseminated intravascular coagulation and the subsequent consumption coagulopathy presented as DVT.
