Liu and Tan: 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Pneumonia

Online supplemental material is available for this article.

A 41-year-old woman with a travel history to Wuhan, China, where the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was spreading (1), presented with a 4-day history of fever. Laboratory examinations and chest radiographs were negative. Chest CT (Figure) showed multifocal ground-glass opacities in the perihilar and subpleural regions of both lungs, a common finding of 2019-nCoV–infected pneumonia (25). A throat swab was positive for 2019-nCoV on the real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction assay. The patient was immediately isolated for clinical monitoring.

Images in a 41-year-old woman who presented with fever and positive polymerase chain reaction assay for the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). (a) Three representative axial thin-section chest CT images show multifocal ground glass opacities without consolidation. (b) Three-dimensional volume-rendered reconstruction shows the distribution of the ground-glass opacities (arrows). See also three-dimensional Movie (online).
