    Background: Prolonged nucleic acid conversion and false-negative results of real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) might occur in some patients with COVID-19 rather than recurrence of infection MESHD. Here, we reported four cases of COVID-19 with prolonged nucleic acid conversion and false-negative results of RT-PCR in our institution.Case presentation: Case 1: A 36-year-old- male TRANS patient complained of coughing HP up phlegm one week before admission. His chest X-rays showed mild pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD in the right lung. His swab test was confirmed positive for SARS-Cov-2. Besides the last two consecutive negative results, he also had negative results of RT-PCR twice (the 6th and 8th tests) from a total of 11 swab tests. Case 2: A 54-year-old- male TRANS patient complained of shortness of breath MESHD that worsened with activity. He had a comorbidity of diabetes MESHD. His chest X-rays showed inhomogeneous opacity on bilateral paracardial and lateral aspects. His swab test was confirmed positive for SARS-Cov-2. Besides the last two consecutive negative results, he also had negative results of RT-PCR once (the 5th test) from a total of 8 swab tests. Case 3: A 47-year-old man presented with complaints of fever HP fever MESHD, cough HP cough MESHD, sore throat, and diarrhea HP diarrhea MESHD. He had comorbidities of asthma HP asthma MESHD and heart rhythm disorders MESHD. His chest X-rays showed bilateral pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD. His swab test was confirmed positive for SARS-Cov-2. Besides the last two consecutive negative results, he also showed negative results of RT-PCR twice (the 4th and 6th tests) from a total of 11 swab tests. Case 4: A 56-year-old- female TRANS complained of lethargy HP lethargy MESHD and diarrhea HP diarrhea MESHD. She has a history of hyperthyroidism HP hyperthyroidism MESHD. His chest X-rays showed bilateral pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD. She was confirmed positive for SARS-Cov-2. Besides the last two consecutive negative results, she also had negative results of RT-PCR twice (the 2nd and 10th tests) from a total of 14 swab tests.Conclusions: Our cases further confirmed TRANS the occurrence of prolonged nucleic acid conversion and the possibility of false negative results of RT-PCR in patients with COVID-19 instead of recurrence of infection MESHD. These findings might have an implication on the management of patients with COVID-19 who have already clinically and radiologically recovered, particularly related to subsequent spreading of the infection MESHD in the community.
