Abstract:

Diabetes is the one of the most frequently detected comorbidities in patients infected with COVID-19. A few case reports also were published that COVID-19 may cause acute hyperglycemic crises (DKA/ HHS) in patients with inadequately controlled diabetes, as well as newly diagnosed diabetes. We report a metabolic acidosis due to ketoacidosis in an euglycemic diabetic patient with COVID-19 pneumonia. COVID-19 infection may cause fat breakdown and induce ketosis, ketoacidosis may develop at the end of the process.

Keywords:
