Viral infections are frequent among patients with thoracic malignancies prompted by dysregulation of innate and adaptive immune response. Clinical symptoms and radiological findings of both viral pneumonia and lung adenocarcinoma may overlap resulting in diagnostic and clinical challenges. We present the case of a woman admitted to our department presenting with an acute manifestation of coronavirus OC43 pneumonia with underlying undiagnosed lung adenocarcinoma.

Abstract

Viral infections are frequent among patients with thoracic malignancies prompted by dysregulation of innate and adaptive immune response. Clinical symptoms and radiological findings of both viral pneumonia and lung adenocarcinoma may overlap resulting in diagnostic and clinical challenges. We present the case of a woman admitted to our department presenting with an acute manifestation of coronavirus OC43 pneumonia with underlying undiagnosed lung adenocarcinoma.
