    Background: Coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) induces myocardial injury MESHD, either direct myocarditis HP myocarditis MESHD or indirect injury due to systemic inflammatory response. Myocardial involvement MESHD has been proved to be one of the primary manifestations of COVID-19 infection MESHD, according to laboratory test, autopsy, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI). However, the middle-term outcome of cardiac involvement MESHD after the patients were discharged from the hospital is yet unknown. The present study aimed to evaluate mid-term cardiac sequelae in recovered COVID-19 patients by CMRIMethods: A total of 47 recovered COVID-19 patients were prospectively recruited and underwent CMRI examination in this study. The CMRI protocol consisted of black blood SERO fat-suppressed T2 weighted imaging (BB-T2WI), T2 star mapping, left ventricle cine imaging, pre- and post-contrast T1 mapping, and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE). Myocardium edema MESHD edema HP and LGE were assessed in recovered COVID-19 patients. The left ventricle ( LV MESHD) and right ventricle (RV) function and LV mass were assessed and compared with normal controls.Results: Finally, 44 recovered COVID-19 patients and 31 normal controls were included in this study. No edema HP edema MESHD was observed in any patient. LGE was found in 13 patients. All LGE lesions were located in the middle myocardium and/or sub-epicardium with a scattered distribution. Further analysis showed that LGE-positive patients had significantly decreased left ventricle peak global circumferential strain (LVpGCS), right ventricle peak global circumferential strain (RVpGCS), right ventricle peak global longitudinal strain (RVpGLS) as compared to non-LGE patients (p<0.05), while no difference was detected between the non-LGE patients and normal controls.Conclusion: Myocardium injury MESHD existed in about 30% of COVID-19 patients. These patients had peak right ventricle strain that decreased at the 3-month follow-up. Cardiac MRI can monitor the COVID-19-induced myocarditis HP myocarditis MESHD progression, and CMR strain analysis is a sensitive tool to evaluate the recovery of left ventricle circumferential contraction dysfunction MESHD and right ventricular dysfunction MESHD.

    Severe disease MESHD and uremia MESHD are risk factors for neurological complications of coronavirus disease MESHD-2019 (COVID-19). An in-depth analysis of a case series was conducted to describe the neurological manifestations of patients with COVID-19 and gain pathophysiological insights that may guide clinical decision-making – especially with respect to the cytokine release syndrome (CRS). Extensive clinical, laboratory, and imaging phenotyping was performed in five patients. Neurological presentation included confusion HP confusion MESHD, tremor HP tremor MESHD, cerebellar ataxia MESHD ataxia HP, behavioral alterations, aphasia HP aphasia MESHD, pyramidal syndrome, coma HP coma MESHD, cranial nerve palsy MESHD, dysautonomia MESHD, and central hypothyroidism HP hypothyroidism MESHD. Neurological disturbances MESHD were remarkably accompanied by laboratory evidence of CRS. SARS-CoV-2 was undetectable in the cerebrospinal fluid. Hyperalbuminorachy and increased levels of the astroglial protein S100B were suggestive of blood SERO-brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction. Brain MRI findings comprised evidence of acute leukoencephalitis MESHD (n = 3, of whom one with a hemorrhagic form), cytotoxic edema HP edema MESHD mimicking ischemic stroke HP ischemic stroke MESHD (n = 1), or normal results (n = 2). Treatment with corticosteroids and/or intravenous immunoglobulins was attempted – resulting in rapid recovery from neurological disturbances MESHD in two cases. Patients with COVID-19 can develop neurological manifestations that share clinical, laboratory, and imaging similarities with those of chimeric antigen receptor-T cell-related encephalopathy HP encephalopathy MESHD. The pathophysiological underpinnings appear to involve CRS, endothelial activation, BBB dysfunction, and immune-mediated mechanisms.

    Background : The aim of this was to analyze 4 chest CT imaging features of patients with coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) in Shenzhen, China so as to improve the diagnosis of COVID-19.   Methods: Chest CT of 34 patients with COVID-19 confirmed by the nucleic acid test (NAT) were retrospectively analyzed. Analyses were performed to investigate the pathological basis of four imaging features(“feather sign”,“dandelion sign”,“pomegranate sign”, and “rime sign”) and to summarize the follow-up results.   Results: There were 22 patients (65.2 %) with typical “feather sign”and 18 (52.9%) with “dandelion sign”, while few patients had “pomegranate sign” and “rime sign”. The “feather sign” and “dandelion sign” were composed of stripe or round ground-glass opacity(GGO), thickened blood SERO vessels, and small-thickened interlobular septa. The “pomegranate sign” was characterized as follows: the increased range of GGO, the significant thickening of the interlobular septum, complicated with a small amount of punctate alveolar hemorrhage. The “rime sign” was characterized by numerous alveolar edemas HP. Microscopically, the wall thickening, small vascular proliferation, luminal stenosis, and occlusion, accompanied by interstitial infiltration of inflammatory cells, as well as numerous pulmonary interstitial fibrosis and partial hyaline degeneration were observed. Repeated chest CT revealed the mediastinal lymphadenectasis in one patient. Re-examination of the NAT showed another positive anal swab in two patients.   Conclusion: “Feather sign” and “dandelion sign” were typical chest CT features in patients with COVID-19; “pomegranate sign” was an atypical feature, and “rime sign” was a severe feature. In clinical work, accurate identification of various chest CT signs can help to improve the diagnostic accuracy of COVID-19 and reduce the misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis rate.

    Background Critical patients with novel coronavirus pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP ( COVID-19) have worse outcome and high mortality. However, the histopathology of critical patient with COVID-19 remains undisclosed. Methods We performed the whole lung biopsy, and described the pathological changes of critical COVID-19 patient done with transplant by HE staining, immunohistochemistry and special staining observed under the microscopy. Findings The whole lungs displayed diffuse congestive appearance and partly haemorrhagic necrosis MESHD on gross examination. The haemorrhagic necrosis MESHD was prominently present in outer edge of the right lower lung. The cut surfaces of the lung displayed severe congestive and haemorrhagic changes. The main pathological changes showed massive pulmonary interstitial fibrosis MESHD, and partly hyaline degeneration MESHD, variable degrees of hemorrhagic pulmonary infarction MESHD. Small vessels hyperplasia MESHD, vessel wall thickening, lumen stenosis, occlusion and microthrombosis MESHD formation. Focal monocytes, lymphocytes and plasma SERO cells infiltrating into pulmonary HP interstitium. Bronchiolitis HP Bronchiolitis MESHD and alveolitis with proliferation, atrophy MESHD, desquamation MESHD and squamous MESHD metaplasia of epithelial cells. Atrophy MESHD, vacuolar degeneration, proliferation, desquamation MESHD and squamous MESHD metaplasia in alveolar epithelial MESHD cells. Alveolar MESHD cavity congestion was prominent, and contained mucus, edema HP edema MESHD fluid, desquamated epithelial cells, and inflammatory cells. We also found several multinucleate giant cells and intracytoplasmic viral inclusion bodies. Special stains including Masson stain, sirius red staining, reticular fibers staining indicated massive pulmonary interstitial fibrosis MESHD. Immunohistochemistry showed positive for immunity cells including CD3, CD4, CD8, CD20, CD79a, CD5, CD38 and CD68. Interpretation We demonstrate the pathological findings of critical patient with COVID-19, which might provide a deep insight of the pathogenesis and severity of this disease.
