Multisystemic Infarctions in COVID-19: Focus on the Spleen
KeywordsSARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, pneumonia, coronavirus, disseminated intravascular coagulation, splenic infarction
The literature suggests that COVID-19 provokes arterial and venous thrombotic events, although the mechanism is still unknown. In this study, we describe patients with confirmed coronavirus infection associated with multisystemic infarction, focusing on splenic infarction. More data are required to elucidate how COVID-19 and thrombotic disease interact and so that preventive and early diagnosis strategies can be developed.
