Corona virus disease is thought to be of zoonotic origin which has been named SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and was first introduced in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Although the corona virus-associated inflammatory state can additionally lead to significant thromboembolic complications despite prophylaxis, previous studies have reported the clinical manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 are varied, ranging from asymptomatic to severe. Here, we reported a 69-year-old female infected with COVID-19 pneumonia, presenting with shortness of breath, chest pain, and left leg swelling for 1 week. Although the patients who had no history of chronic disease, but she was diagnosed with pulmonary thromboembolism and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) from mild case of COVID-19 pneumonia.
