    Background: Coronavirus Disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) is a disease caused by infection with Severe HP infection with Severe MESHD Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 MESHD (SARS-CoV-2), which commonly presents with symptoms including fever HP fever MESHD, cough HP cough MESHD, and dyspnea HP dyspnea MESHD. More recently, however, some patients have tested positive for COVID-19 after developing gastrointestinal ( GI MESHD) symptoms either solely or in conjunction with respiratory symptoms. This may be due to SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD of the GI MESHD tract. In patients with chronic GI illnesses MESHD, COVID-19 may initially present as a flare of their underlying GI MESHD conditions as viruses have historically been implicated in exacerbations of GI disorders MESHD, including gastroparesis HP gastroparesis MESHD. Case presentation: We report a case of a 37 year-old female TRANS with a history of diabetic gastroparesis MESHD gastroparesis HP who presented to the Emergency Department (ED) in a gastroparesis HP gastroparesis MESHD flare. Her symptoms in the ED failed to improve with fluids and anti-emetic medications. After developing a fever HP fever MESHD, she was tested and found to be positive for COVID-19.Conclusion: To our knowledge, at the present time, this is the first report of a patient with COVID-19 presenting with signs and symptoms of a gastroparesis HP gastroparesis MESHD flare. This case illustrates that patients with underlying GI disorders MESHD, such as gastroparesis HP gastroparesis MESHD, may have SARS-CoV-2 infections MESHD that present as an exacerbation of their underlying disorder. Initial presentation of these patients manifesting as a flare of their chronic GI disease MESHD, more severe than usual, should prompt an index of suspicion for COVID-19.
