Keywords: COVID-19 Pneumonia, Thrombocytopenia, T-Wave Inversion, Novel T-Wave Graduation, Touching Radiological Variant Pericardial Injury
Abbreviations: CAD: Coronary Artery Disease; COVID-19: Coronavirus Disease 2019; ECG: Electrocardiogram; ICU: Intensive Care Unit; ITP: Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura; O2: Oxygen; POC: Physician Outpatient Clinic; SGOT: Serum Glutamic-Oxaloacetic Transaminase; SGPT: Serum Glutamic-Pyruvic Transaminase; VR: Ventricular Rate
Rationale: Immune thrombocytopenic purpura may be associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or Coronaviruses. Probably fatal outcome for the disease has a remarkable effect on morbidity and mortality. T-wave is the positive deflection post-each QRS-complex. Physiologically, it represents ventricular repolarization.
Patient Concerns: A 66-year-old, teacher, married male, Egyptian patient was presented to the physician outpatient clinic with COVID-19 pneumonia with thrombocytopenia and abnormal T-wave.
Diagnosis: COVID pneumonia with immune thrombocytopenic purpura and novel T-wave graduation.
Interventions: Non-contrast chest CT, electrocardiography, oxygenation, and echocardiography.
Outcomes: Good response and better outcomes despite the presence of numerous remarkable risk factors were the results.
Lessons: The association of COVID pneumonia with immune thrombocytopenic purpura and novel T-wave graduation is highly interesting. An elder age, male sex, COVID-19 pneumonia, and immune thrombocytopenic purpura are constellation serious risk factors. Touching radiological variant pericardial injury with mild hypokalemia maybe interpret the novel T-wave graduation.
