Pleural Tuberculosis in a Patient After COVID-19 Pneumonia

Year 2022, Volume 5, Issue 1, 101 - 103, 01.01.2022

Abstract

During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, it was observed that the clinics of existing and undiagnosed tuberculosis (TB) patients were more severe, especially in low and middle-income countries where TB is endemic and there is a lack of healthcare. There is limited literature on whether the coexistence of TB and COVID 19 or the lung damage/immune state caused by COVID-19, or whether immunosuppressive therapies used during the treatment of COVID-19 whether it creates a predisposition to TB. In this case report, we aimed to present a 66-year-old female patient diagnosed as pleural tuberculosis after COVID-19 pneumonia and to examine the possible relationship between COVID-19 and TB.
