Abstract

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a viral respiratory illness caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Although, it's main consequences are viral pneumonia and respiratory manifestations, both arterial and venous thromboembolic events have also been recognized as potential complications associated with it. Here, we present a case of arterial thrombosis in a young patient with no significant past medical history who had recovered from COVID-19 several months prior to presentation.
