Abstract

ABSTRACT:Corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has adversely affected the whole world. Health care professionals are continuously trying to understand and cope up with this rapidly mutating virus having variable manifestations and unpredictable outcomes. We report an unusual case of a young male who was admitted in dermatology ward with mucocutaneous rash but during hospitalization developed acute abdomen and acute chest pain. Evaluation of acute abdomen and chest pain did not reveal any underlying cause and meanwhile he turned out to be COVID-19 positive. He was managed accordingly and all his symptoms got settled on recovery from COVID-19 illness.
