COVID-19 infection with exclusive gastrointestinal symptoms
We present a case of coronavirus infection with only gastrointestinal symptoms. Recently, more cases are being reported in which these symptoms (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever) precede the respiratory clinic .
In this case we show how in these situations the chest X-ray can put in suspicion the possibility of coronavirus, allowing an early diagnosis and predictably a better outcome.
Epidemiological context and high clinical suspicion are fundamental aspects for proper diagnosis, so radiologists must be familiar with these subtle findings in plain radiography to contribute to the best possible care in these patients.
