    Background: An outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome MESHD due to coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection MESHD (COVID-19) that began at Wuhan, China in December 2019, spreading rapidly across China and many other countries. Considering the high false-negative rate of RT-PCR assay during initial COVID-19 pandemic in China, chest computed tomography (CT) was advocated as a means of corroborating clinically suspected infections.Case presentation: A 51-year-old man with clinical diagnosis of hepatic portal cholangiocarcinoma HP cholangiocarcinoma MESHD and Behcet's disease MESHD developed clinical manifestations suggestive of COVID-19 during the pandemic in China. The chest CT showed rapid progression to diffuse ground-glass opacities (GCOs) in both lungs, as in severe cases of confirmed TRANS COVID-19. He was finally diagnosed with Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP ( PJP MESHD) according to the medical history, and Caspofungin plus TMP/SMX elicited a rapid response as normalizing both temperature and leukocyte count initially. Unfortunately, dyspnea HP dyspnea MESHD was aggravated with resumed fever HP later, and non-invasive ventilation was no longer tenable. The patient himself (with support of his family) declined mechanical ventilatory assistance, succumbing to pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD and respiratory failure HP respiratory failure MESHD finally.Conclusions: CT diagnosis of COVID-19 during the current pandemic should warrant caution.
