The recent outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to evolve in many countries and pose life-threatening clinical issues to global public health. There is no vaccine or therapeutic proven options to prevent COVID-19 infection. It has been speculated that some immunomodulating drugs may have an effect on the progression of this infection. It is reasonable that colchicine may be tested in the context of COVID-19 to detect its immunomodulatory effects which may prevent acute respiratory distress syndrome. We discussed a case with COVID-19 pneumonia using colchicine successfully treated and reviewed the literature.
