    Background: Currently, there is no available study about the occurrence of enterocolitis HP enterocolitis MESHD associated with the coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) among adults TRANS. Case presentation: A 56-year-old man had lower abdominal pain HP abdominal pain MESHD, distension, diarrhea, and bloody HP diarrhea, and bloody MESHD stool. Moreover, the patient presented with fever HP fever MESHD and general fatigue MESHD fatigue HP. Laboratory examination did not reveal leukocytosis HP leukocytosis MESHD nor neutrophilia HP. However, the patient’s C-reactive protein level increased to 4.9 (normal range: 0.0–0.3) mg/dL. Both sputum and stool cultures had normal results. However, abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan revealed wall thickness mainly in the submucosal layer of the left part of the large intestine. Thus, real-time polymerase chain reaction test of throat swabs was performed for the diagnosis of COVID-19, and positive results were obtained. Conclusions: We report the first case of enterocolitis HP enterocolitis MESHD correlated to COVID-19, and the patient had positive abdominal CT scan findings. This imaging modality could be effective for the diagnosis of enterocolitis HP enterocolitis MESHD associated with COVID-19.
