COVID-19 Unveiling Heart Failure in the Realm of Rheumatic Heart Disease.

Publication date: Jan 01, 2024

The global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has resulted in various clinical manifestations, including cardiovascular complications. This case report focuses on a unique instance where COVID-19 infection exacerbated heart failure and induced atrial fibrillation in a previously asymptomatic young male with undiagnosed rheumatic heart disease (RHD). RHD, a prevalent cause of valvular abnormalities in developing countries, poses an additional risk for severe outcomes when coexisting with COVID-19 infection, highlighting the need for prompt and tailored interventions.
