CDC Split Type:

Write-up: The patient received her first Moderna COVID-19 vaccination on 12/29/2020. However the patient was diagnosed with a positive COVID-19 test on January 4, 2021. Patient complained of nausea, vomiting, back pain, and sharp chest pain. On January 13, the patient presented to the emergency department again with shortness of breath and sharp, stabbing left-sided chest pain radiating to her back and right side. Initial work up ruled out cardiac etiologies. CTA chest demonstrated COVID-19 pneumonia. The patient complained of bilateral lower extremity weakness which had been progressing since her COVID-19 vaccination, per patient report. However, during her hospitalization the patient''s bilateral lower extremity weakness began to accelerate. On the 13th, the patient was able to ambulate to and from the bathroom herself. Then on January 14 the patient required maximum assistance. Neurology was consulted and work up initiated for suspected possible Guillain-Barr? syndrome (GBS) secondary to recent COVID-19 infection. On January 15, 2021, the patient became obtunded and unable to protect airway. She was emergently intubated for acute hypercapnic respiratory failure secondary to GBS. Neurology started GBS treatment with IVIG. Patient also developed NSTEMI and Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Patient remains critically ill requiring mechanical ventilation.
