Basically, a new type of coronavirus infection manifests itself as an increase in body temperature, dry cough and increased fatigue. However, sometimes other symptoms of the disease appear in patients, even rather unusual ones.
Scientists have now reported a rare symptom of COVID-19 in men.
According to a new study by specialists from the Royal University Hospital of Liverpool, coronavirus infection may be accompanied by signs of acute pancreatitis – inflammation of the pancreas. Such symptoms include colic, vomiting, palpitations, fever, bloating, and diarrhea.
Scientists said that in March and April, five patients with symptoms of acute pancreatitis were admitted to the Liverpool Royal University Hospital. Everyone found COVID-19. These patients were overweight or obese young men. Before coronavirus infection, they did not have any symptoms of pancreatitis.
Take care of yourself and your family.
