Mohammed Talaat Rashid, Waleed Askar, Ahmed Gaafar, Mohamed Fawzy, Mahmoud Abul makarem.

Abstract
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
