Coronavirus disease 2019-associated rapidly progressive organizing pneumonia with fibrotic feature: Two case reports

研究成果: Article査読

抄録

INTRODUCTION: Pneumonia is one of the most important characteristics of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and imaging findings of COVID-19 pneumonia are diverse and change over disease course. However, the detailed clinical course of organizing pneumonia (OP) caused by COVID-19 has not been clarified. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 60-year-old man and a 61-year-old woman diagnosed with mild COVID-19 were admitted to our hospital. Their respiratory symptoms were deteriorating even after initiating treatment with antiviral drugs. DIAGNOSIS: Chest X-rays and computed tomography scan showed a rapid progression of linear consolidation with reversed halo sign, distributed in subpleural and peri-bronchial regions. They also presented with pulmonary fibrosis findings, including traction bronchiectasis and marked lung volume reduction. They were diagnosed with rapidly progressing OP. INTERVENTIONS: They were treated with systemic corticosteroids. OUTCOMES: The patients' imaging findings and respiratory conditions improved rapidly without any adverse effects. CONCLUSION: Physicians should carefully monitor patients with COVID-19, as they can develop rapidly progressive and fibrotic OP, which respond to corticosteroids.
