With the emergence of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, we witnessed a higher incidence of disseminated and extrapulmonary tuberculosis. It poses a significant diagnostic challenge for the physicians; therefore, a high index of suspicion should be maintained. Here we present a case of isolated chest wall tuberculosis in an immunocompetent patient.
The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate respiratory flu-like illness and recover without the need for hospitalization. However, one of the not uncommonly observed extrapulmonary associations with SARS-COV-2 is developing large-vessel acute ischemic stroke.
COVID-19 associated bronchiectasis is an atypical finding and it's not commonly described sequel of the disease. Here, we present a previously healthy middle-aged man who developed progressive bronchiectasis evident on serial chest CT scans with superimposed bacterial infection following COVID-19 pneumonia.
