We report an interesting case of COVID-19 infection filled by complications (tuberculosis, pulmonary embolism, post COVID-19 lung fibrosis and Peripheral neuropathy). The patient was a 58 years old Syrian male. He reported to us in the emergency department with chief complaints of cough with expectoration associated with fever, chest pain, sore throat, headache, shortness of breath. His complaint started 10 days ago. The diagnosis of tuberculosis in the current pandemic of COVID-19 required a high degree of suspicion to rule out the SARS-CoV-2 infection along with the infection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and because the clinical presentations in the two diseases are quite similar. Also there are many complications of COVID-19 infection, some are very rare, serious and life-threatening such: Pulmonary embolism, peripheral neuropathy and fibrosis. Thus the present case will serve as a tool to help the clinicians handling cases of both the viral and bacterial infection across the global, importance of giving attention to severe complications of COVID-19 infection and treatment them.
