Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV- 2) infection is associated with coagulopathy, which leads to severe life-threatening complications apart from lung pathology. The occurrence of thrombotic phenomena is well reported, but few cases with major bleeding have been documented. The underlying mechanism for bleeding in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID- 19) has not been clearly understood. We describe 5 cases of COVID-19 infection with significant bleeding, managed at different hospitals in Sri Lanka. By sharing this experience, we hope to enlighten clinicians to look out for rare but potentially fatal bleeding manifestations related to COVID-19 infection.
