COMEBAC Study Group. Four-Month Clinical Status of a Cohort of Patients After Hospitalization for COVID-19. JAMA 2021. Published online
In a cohort study of 478 patients who were evaluated 4 months after hospitalization for COVID-19, 51% reported at least 1 symptom that did not exist before the disease. The most common symptoms were fatigue, cognitive problems, and new-onset dyspnea. Among patients who returned for further evaluation, CT scan frequently revealed lung persistent abnormalities, as well as lung fibrotic lesions in a minority of patients. Persistent cardiac dysfunction and kidney failure were uncommon. Almost all patients had positive anti–SARS-CoV-2 serology.
