Abstract:

We present a case of unilateral COVID-19 pneumonia in a patient without comorbidities. The patient was treated with chloroquine and azithromycin. Symptoms included a cough that, after three days, was associated with fever, myalgias, and anorexia, which resolved after ten days. This case presents a valuable opportunity to examine the progression of chest CT findings in COVID-19 pneumonia and the associated clinical course of symptoms. The involvement of a small lung area with mild symptoms, rather than the bilateral ground-glass pattern typically observed with severe respiratory symptoms, could provide new insights into the disease. Many doubts and uncertainties remain about the best therapies for this condition, including antiviral drugs, oxygen therapy, anticoagulation, and antibiotics. Meanwhile, it is vital to consider their side effects and the patient profile for a tailored approach.
