ABSTRACT
To investigate the early diagnosis and treatment of secondary tuberculosis complicated with COVID-19. The clinical manifestation, auxiliary examination, diagnosis and treatment of one case of secondary tuberculosis complicated with COVID-19 admitted to Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital were analyzed retrospectively. The patient had a clear history of COVID-19 exposure. The clinical manifestations were cough, expectoration, fever and gasp. Chest CT showed multiple patch, nodule, spot, strip and cavity shadow in two lungs. COVID-19 was diagnosed as early as possible by detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid in respiratory specimens. After reasonable anti-tuberculosis combined with antiviral treatment, the detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid in respiratory specimens and acid-fast bacilli smear of sputum specimens turned negative, the symptoms were relieved and discharged. In the epidemic period of COVID-19, we should pay attention to the identification of secondary pulmonary tuberculosis with COVID-19, the formulation of drug programs for the treatment of two diseases, and avoid the use of rifampicin, a liver drug enzyme inducer, so as to avoid missed treatment due to the weakened efficacy of lopinavir/ritonavir and abidol, etc.
