    Background: The case presented here illustrates that interdisciplinary teamwork can be essential for the understanding of the COVID-19 disease presentation and enlightening of the pathophysiology. Case presentation: A 60-years-old overweight HP woman without any comorbidities was found dead in her apartment after 14 days of home isolation due to suspicion on the Coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19). She had reported symptoms of tachycardia HP tachycardia MESHD, fever HP fever MESHD, and increasing respiratory difficulty one day before her death MESHD. Due to the Danish legal act on sudden deaths a forensic autopsy was performed including a thorough examination and biosampling. The results of the forensic autopsy displayed sever densified, almost airless, firm lungs, and an unspecific reactive minimal focal perivascular inflammation MESHD consisting of macrophages of the brain tissue. The final diagnosis, COVID-19 with involvement of the central nervous system was established by use of the RT-RNA analysis on cerebrospinal fluid, as well as by serologic detection of the specific antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 SERO in cerebrospinal fluid and serum SERO. The genetic analysis displayed a 2 % variation between SARS-CoV-2 isolates recovered from the tracheal sample, cerebrospinal fluid, and tissues from both lungs.Conclusion: The combination of all available results revealed that the cause of death MESHD was COVID-19 with severe pulmonary disease MESHD and neuroinvasion, as well as renal affection resulting in hyponatremia HP hyponatremia MESHD. To our knowledge, it was not shown previously that neuroinvasion could be confirmed by the detection of specific antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 SERO and SARS-CoV-2 specific RNA in cerebrospinal fluid. This case supports hypotheses that SARS-CoV-2 may cause central nervous system infection MESHD. The genetic distinction between SARS-CoV-2 isolates was done by whole-genome sequencing, where the isolate recovered from the cerebrospinal fluid was the most different.

    Background. C oronavirus Disease MESHD2019 (Covid-19) is expanding worldwide. Although it seems to be a purely r espiratory disease, MESHD occasional reports of lesions in other organs have been published. We report here an asymptomatic TRANS child TRANS Covid-19 patient with the main symptom of abdominal HP bdominal pain MESHD pain HP distension and without any respiratory symptoms.Case presentation. A 14 year-old male TRANS patient without respiratory involvement but with main complaints of fever HP ever, MESHD m alaise, MESHD anorexia HP norexia, MESHD and severe abdominal pain HP bdominal pain MESHDwas admitted to a hospital in Mashhad, Iran. Following general anaesthesia, laparotomy revealed distension of the small intestine and an adhesive ileo-caecal band that had produced ileum herniation without free fluid in the abdomen. The band was surgically severed and the patient referred to the recovery room.  Because of pulse rate of 36-40 per min and respiratory rate of 140 and a saturated O2 of 86%, the patient was referred to the intensive care unit. Chest X-ray and high-resolution computed tomography of the lungs showed bilateral, diffuse, peripheral dense areas of ground-glass appearance. A nasopharyngeal swab for Covid-19 diagnosis, ordered due to lymphopenia HP ymphopenia MESHDtogether with these diffuse lung infiltrations, showed a positive result. This led to drug treatment with lopinavir/ritonavir, hydroxychloroquine, ribavirin/oseltamivir and meropenem. The patient was febrile and developed tachycardia HP achycardia MESHDon the third day accompanied with a respiratory rate of 44/min. At this point, tracheal intubation was done but the patient died after 3 hours due to cardiac arrest HP ardiac arrest. MESHDConclusions. The case report brings forth the hypothesis that the gastrointestinal manifestation may be untypical symptoms of Covid-19 i nfection, MESHD and highlights the importance for the diagnosis to be based on combined laboratory-based data and scanning imagery.

    Background: Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus Disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) in China, respiratory manifestations of the disease have been observed. However, as a fatal comorbidity, acute myocardial injury MESHD ( AMI MESHD) in COVID-19 patients has not been previously investigated in detail. We investigated the clinical characteristics of COVID-19 patients with AMI MESHD and determined the risk factors for AMI MESHD in them. Methods: We analyzed data from 53 consecutive laboratory-confirmed and hospitalized COVID-19 patients (28 men, 25 women; age TRANS, 19-81 years). We collected information on epidemiological and demographic characteristics, clinical features, routine laboratory tests (including cardiac injury MESHD biomarkers), echocardiography, electrocardiography, imaging findings, management methods, and clinical outcomes. Results: Cardiac complications were found in 42 of the 53 (79.25%) patients: tachycardia HP tachycardia MESHD (n=15), electrocardiography abnormities (n=11), diastolic dysfunction MESHD (n=20), elevated myocardial enzymes (n=30), and AMI MESHD (n=6). All the six AMI MESHD patients were aged TRANS >60 years; five of them had two or more underlying comorbidities ( hypertension HP hypertension MESHD, diabetes MESHD, cardiovascular diseases MESHD diseases, and chronic obstructive pulmonary HP chronic obstructive pulmonary disease MESHD). Novel coronavirus pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP (NCP) severity was higher in the AMI MESHD patients than in patients with non-definite AMI MESHD (p<0.001). All the AMI MESHD patients required care in intensive care unit; of them, three died, two remain hospitalized. Multivariate analyses showed that C-reactive protein (CRP) levels, NCP severity, and underlying comorbidities were the risk factors for cardiac abnormalities MESHD in COVID-19 patients. Conclusions: Cardiac complications MESHD are common in COVID-19 patients. Elevated CRP levels, underlying comorbidities, and NCP severity are the main risk factors for cardiac complications in COVID-19 patients.
