Giriş: Korona virus tüm dünyada pandemiye neden olan yeni keşfedilmiş bir virustur. Görüntüleme yönteminin tanı ve takite oldukça önemli olduğu görülmüştür. Bu yazıda 41 yaşında korona enfeksiyonu esnasında çekilen bilgisayarlı toraks tomografisi ile insidental olarak akciğer kanseri tanısı alan bir olgu sunulmuştur.

Olgu Sunumu: 41 yaşında erkek hasta öksürük, ateş ve nefes darlığı ile acil servise başvurdu. Muayenesinde akciğerde dinlemekle solunum sesleri değişmişti. PCR testi yapılan olguda nefes darlığı olması nedeniyle Akciğer bilgisayarlı tomografi çekildi. Tomografide korona virus enfeksiyonu ile uyumlu atipik viral pneumoni bulgularının yanında sağ akciğer orta lobda 44x64 mm kitle mevcuttu. PCR testi pozitif gelen olgunun korona virus tedavisi başlandı. 1 hafta sonra tedaviye cevap veren olguda biyopsi sonucu akciğer kanseri tanısı konuldu.

Sonuç: Korona virus enfeksiyon tanısında görüntüleme oldukça önem arzetmektedir. İnsidental bulgular sıklıkla Bilgisayarlı Tomografi tarafından tespit edilmiştir.

Introduction: COVID-19 (Corona Virus Disease-19) is a newly discovered virus that caused pandemic infection worldwide. The imaging methods are crucial for diagnosis and follow-up in this infectious period. In this article, a case with coronavirus, which was diagnosed as lung cancer incidentally, is presented. Case report: A 41-year-old man presented to the emergency room with cough, fever, and shortness of breath. On examination, breathing sounds changed by listening in the lung. Lung computerized tomography was performed due to shortness of breath while waiting for the PCR test. In addition to the findings of atypical viral pneumonia compatible with coronavirus infection in the tomography, there was a 44x64mm mass in the right lung middle lobe. Coronavirus treatment was initiated in the patient, whose PCR test was positive. The patient who responded to the treatment after one week was diagnosed as lung cancer as a result of the biopsy. Conclusion: In the diagnosis of COVID-19, imaging has a crucial role. Incidental findings are commonly detected by computed tomography.
