COVID19 is the designated name given by the WHO for the corona virus disease caused by the virus SARS-COV-2 that was initially identified in the late 2019 and progressed to be a world pandemic.Patients with COVID-19 may have a wide range of coagulation abnormalities (in the direction of an underlying hypercoagulable state), raising questions about appropriate evaluations and interventions to prevent or treat thrombosis. Hypercoagulable state associated with COVID-19 has been repeatedly reported. The prevalence of venous thromboembolism is increasing, especially in the critically ill patient in spite of prophylactic use of anticoagulation. [1-3]. Arterial thrombosis has also been reported but the prevalence is not known. [3]. In this case report, we present a 37 years old man who suffered an acute abdomen due to superior mesenteric artery thrombosis as a possible complication of the COVID-19.

Key words: COVID-19, Superior mesenteric artery thrombosis, acute abdomen, hypercoagulability
