Abstract

Thromboembolic complications are well recognized events in Covid-19 infection. Most of the case fatalities are due to this event. Although any blood vessels may be involved, larger vessels are less commonly involved in this process. Here we describe a case of thrombosis of the arch of the aorta in association of Covid-19 infection in a hospitalized patient. The aim was to ensure timely identification and therapeutic intervention to prevent distal thromboembolic sequelae.
