In view of the current ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, many cases which are strongly suspected of having COVID LRTI clinically and radiologically but are RTPCR negative in early stages pose a clinical challenge to the treating physician. In these cases, different diagnostic modalities have to be used for diagnosis of COVID-19 and early treatment as per COVID protocols with non-invasive ventilatory support can significantly alter the outcome in favour of patient. We hereby are going to discuss about a case of severe acute respiratory illness due to COVID-19 who was RTPCR negative in earlier stage. He was managed with standard COVID treatment protocols with various modes of non-invasive ventilatory supports and now is being treated in chest ward for post COVID fibrosis.
