    Background During the outbreak period of COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD, cancer MESHD patients have been neglected and in greater danger. Furthermore, the differential diagnosis between COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD and radiation pneumonitis MESHD in caner patients remains a challenge. The study aimed to determine their clinical presentations and radiological features to familiarize radiologists and clinical teams with them in order to early diagnosis and prompt early patient isolation.Methods From January 21, 2019 to February 18, 2020, the patients selected consecutively met the following criteria: (i) presumed COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD; (ii) patients with a history of malignancy MESHD and lung exposure to ionizing radiation. A retrospective analysis including all patients’ presenting was performed.Results 4 patients from 112 suspected individals were selected, including 2 males TRANS and 2 females TRANS with a median age TRANS of 54 years (39–64 years). After repeated pharyngeal swab nucleic acid tests, 1 case was confirmed TRANS and 3 cases were excluded from COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD.Conclusions Despite the comparable morphologic characteristics of lung CT imaging, the location, extent, and distribution of lung lesions between COVID-19 pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD and radiation pneumonitis MESHD differ significantly, further combined with clinical and laboratory findings that could facilitate early diagnosis and appropriate management.
