Abstract

We presented an unusual case of iatrogenic esophageal perforation(EP) following trans-esophageal echocardiography(TEE) in a patient with COVID-19.Force applied during the intubation on an inflammatory and fragile wall caused by COVID-19 probably represented the underlying condition that contributed to the EP.Early diagnosis and urgent treatment are essential for a favorable prognosis
