Presenting a case of interstitial bilateral pneumonia that occurred in October 2019 in a 56-year-old patient, followed by us over time with standard radiograms and chest high resolution computed tomography (HRCT). Initially framed as atypical pneumonia, it has been classified and treated later as a cryptogenic organization pneumonia (COP), presenting a radiological improvement in the CT control performed at 3 months. After another 5 months free of symptoms, the patient is currently positive for IgG COVID-19 serology and negative for the real-time fluorescence polymerase chain reaction of the nasopharyngeal swab for 2019-nCoV nucleic acid.


KEY WORDS: Coronavirus; COVID-19; Pneumonia
