CARRION MERINO, Stefany Thalia et al. Lung interstitial disease secondary to SARS-CoV-2 infection in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.2, pp.120-128. ISSN 2312-3893.

The clinical presentation of COVID-19 is heterogeneous. It ranges from asymptomatic cases to acute respiratory distress syndrome and death. Severe disease can occur in patients with comorbidities, including patients with systemic rheumatic diseases. The impact of rheumatoid arthritis in patients with COVID-19 is not yet clear.

We present the case of a patient with a history of rheumatoid arthritis who had COVID19 and was readmitted with respiratory difficulties and tomographic findings that showed rapidly evolving interstitial lung disease.

Keywords : COVID-19; coronavirus Infections; rheumatoid arthritis; interstitial lung diseases..
