Abstract

Little or nothing is known about the correlation between the upper limb deep vein thrombosis (UL-DVT) and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS–CoV-2). We describe the increased risk of UL-DVT in 3 patients with SARS–CoV-2 who require continuous positive airway pressure with a hood and the need for early adequate antithrombotic prophylaxis.
