Case Reports of COVID 19 Recurrence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

CASE REPORT OF COVID 19—Recurrence We describe as case series of 7 patients who presented with a recurrence of COVID 19 by PCR test an average of 94.9 days after their initial symptomatic presentation of illness. Patients had tested negative by PCR or had evidence of antibodies in between the 2 episodes. The majority of patients were asymptomatic on the second presentation and were found incidentally on prescreen for procedures, surgery. The subsequent positive COVID-19 PCR tests resulted in cancellations of clinic, procedures, surgery, and impacted patients’ home and employment status. Further studies are needed to understand the mechanisms and ultimate outcomes of these recurrences.
