Patients with malignant etiologies often exhibit unfavorable outcomes in COVID-19 infections. Due to the depleted humoral response by cytotoxic therapies and malignant conditions, such patients demonstrate prolonged shedding of SARS-CoV-2. In the current study, we present a case of 52 years old woman who presented with mild symptoms which were confirmed as SARS-CoV-2 infection by subsequent PCR test. Even after the initial correction of symptomatology, she manifested recurrent symptoms including fatigue, dyspnoea at medium efforts, coughing syndrome, and loss of appetite. Rigorous diagnostic efforts were made to identify the underlying etiology of this recurrent behavior. Our investigations revealed that the current case is not a relapse of the malignant disease but rather a prolonged case of SARS-COV-2 infection.
