Popis At the time of the current COVID-19 pandemic, on a daily basis, we encountered patients suffering from various manifestations of this infection. The most common are respiratory symptoms. Many of the patients require acute hospital care, and a smaller group of them are hospitalized in intensive care units. A subset of these critically ill patients demonstrates clinically remarkable hypercoagulability and thus a predisposition to venous and arterial thromboembolism, manifested by thrombotic events ranging from acute pulmonary embolism and splanchnic vascular ischemia to extremity ischemia. The article describes a case of a patient with COVID-19 pneumonia complicated by massive bleeding into the gastrointestinal tract due to ischemic enterocolitis in connection with COVID-19 infection.
