    About 10 – 20% patients experienced a variety of mid and long-term effects after they recovered from their initial illness which is collectively known as ‘Post covid -19 condition’. Clinical complications after the acute phase go beyond the respiratory sphere and can be very diverse. Emerging data on COVID-19 further indicated that the disease can result in prolonged illness and persistent symptoms, with post-acute PFT and imaging findings that possibly imply a varying degree of pulmonary vasculopathy and interstitial lung involvement persisting in the recovery phase of the disease.We aim to evaluate the post COVID pulmonary changes of the disease by follow-up HRCT scan in patients discharged after the treatment for COVID-19.
