ABSTRACT

Background: In patients who are critically ill with COVID-19, multiple extrapulmonary manifestations of the disease have been observed, including gastrointestinal manifestations. Case Presentation: We present a case of a 65 year old man with severe COVID-19 pneumonia that developed hypercoagulation and peritonitis. Emergent laparotomy was performed and we found bowel necrosis in two sites. Conclusions: Although rare, the presentation of COVID-19 with bowel necrosis requires emergency treatments, and it has high mortality rate.
