Abstract:   (584 Views)
Background: In this present study, we reported a 31-week pregnant woman who had a history of fever and chills in the past two daysreferred to Mostafa Khomeini Hospital in Tabas.
Case report: A 29-year-old pregnant woman with a gestational age of 31 weeks presented to the gynecology clinic. Her chief complaint was a history of fever and chills in the recent past two days. Since there were no suspicious findings in favor of infections, related to obstetrics and gynecology, the patient was referred to Mostafa Khomeini Hospital in Tabas (June 2020). The initial clinical examination revealed no fever, chills, cough, respiratory distress, body aches, gastrointestinal problems or anything else. The patient’s oxygen saturation level was 98%. Routine laboratorytests were requested for the patient. WBC count was 14000, lymphocyte count was 875 (6.25%), and platelet count was 117000. According to the recent history of clinical symptoms and positive paraclinical results, COVID-19 was suspected. In the chest CT findings, bilateral ground glass opacities (GGO) and consolidations were observed, which were compatible with COVID-19 pattern. Based on the positive clinical and lab tests, COVID-19 was detected and positive RT-PCR COVID-19 test confirmed our diagnosis.
Conclusion: The patient was asymptomatic at the time of admission to our ward; however, she reported fever and chills in the last two days, which raised our suspicion about COVID-19. Due to significant lymphopenia and the increase in granulocytes counts, and thrombocytopenia accompanied with complementary lab tests, severe COVID-19 was diagnosed and confirmed with positive RT-PCR test.
