Since December 2019, there has been an increasing number of patients infected with the severe acute respiratory
syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) around the world. As of March 2020, the World Health Organization declared a
global pandemic. To our best knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with SARS-CoV-2 infection presenting with
constrictive pericarditis, possibly from the COVID infection. She was presented after a week of fever, persistent dry cough,
and diarrhea. She received a single dose of hydroxychloroquine 400 mg, Oseltamivir 75 mg every 12 hours, lopinavir/ritonavir (Kaletra) 400/100 mg every 12 hours, and levofloxacin 750 mg daily. After 24 hours, she was immediately
transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) because of dyspnea and progressive respiratory failure with a drop of the O2
saturation to 70%. After a week of progress, her respiratory condition deteriorated again. She was re-admitted to the ICU
and she expired. She died due to isolated constrictive pericarditis, most probably caused by SARS-CoV-2.
