KeywordsCOVID-19, renal artery thrombosis, pulmonary embolism
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is associated with a high incidence of thrombotic complications involving both the arterial and the venous systems. However, concurrent arterial and venous thrombosis is extremely rare.

To our knowledge, this is the first such case described in the literature.
