Acute invasive fungal rhino-orbital sinusitis is a possible encounter in COVID-19 patients.
Most of the included patients presented predominantly within a late stage of COVID-19 infection.
The included patients were presented with radiologic features like the pattern previously reported in literature.
The incidence of devastating opportunistic coinfections in patients with COVID-19 infection, their imaging features and their morbidity and mortality consequences need to be unraveled.
This is a case series presenting the radiologic features and clinical presentation of acute invasive fungal rhino-orbital-cerebral sinusitis (AIFS) in eight hospitalized patients with confirmed COVID-19 infection.
Our patient cohort presented with symptoms of the invasive fungal disease within 12–35 days from their initial presentation with COVID-19 infection. The cross-sectional imaging features of AIFS associated with COVID-19 infection do not differ from those reported in the literature for AIFS associated with other risk factors, yet our patients had features of aggressive late-stage forms with high morbidity and mortality rate.
AIFS is a possible encounter in patients with COVID-19 patients and radiologists should be familiar with its imaging features.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
