Abstract: A 36 year old gentleman with no significant past medical history but had recent COVID-19 exposure presented to the hospital with the chief complaints of fever, shortness of breath, cough and pain abdomen. He was unfortunately found to SARS-CoV-2 positive. Laboratory findings showed S. amylase, S. lipase along with elevated inflammatory markers and unremarkable creatinine, bilirubin, cardiac troponin level. The cause of his elevated S. amylase and lipase was discovered to be due to COVID-19 and no evidence of other common etiology like gallstones, viral, bacterial infections, strenuous exercise, non-traumatic exertional etiology. He received aggressive fluid with antibiotics throughout his hospitalization course. His pain abdomen and breathlessness improved with treatment and he was found to maintain stable hemodynamics and was subsequently discharged home.
