Doctors in various parts of the world continue to discover the symptoms associated with the emerging corona virus, which become clear gradually, after they were initially limited to heat and coughing, and then they added to them the loss of the sense of smell and taste, in addition to some other symptoms.

Doctors in Italy monitored new symptoms related to infection with the Coronavirus and its complications, noting that they had detected them in the case of a woman being infected and it was treated as “rare.”

The British newspaper, “The Daily Mirror”, said in a report it had seen, that doctors in Italy had treated a woman for complications from the Corona virus, as she had rare symptoms, which are an inflammation of the thyroid gland, an infection that can cause severe pain in the neck in addition to a fever. A rise in body temperature.

A medical report related to a new case in Italy revealed that the Corona virus can also cause a rare complication called “subacute thyroiditis”.

Doctors in Italy treated a woman for this case, in what is believed to be the first known case associated with the “Covid-19” virus.

“Doctors should be alerted to the possibility of this additional clinical manifestation related to Covid-19,” said Dr. Francesco Latruva, who treated the woman.

The 18-year-old woman, whose name has not been revealed, had tested positive for the emerging coronavirus and had fully recovered from the disease.

Doctors say that the woman began suffering from neck pain, thyroid gland, fever and irregular heart rate after recovering from the virus, and later doctors diagnosed her case as having “subacute thyroiditis.”

Doctors note that “subacute thyroiditis” is more common in women between the ages of 20 and 50, and usually causes fever and pain in the neck, jaw or ear.

The National Health Services Authority in Britain (NHS) said, “These symptoms appear when thyroid gland inflammation, and last weeks or months before the gland recovers completely.”
