We describe three patients with COVID-19 who presented with an acute vascular event rather than with typical respiratory symptoms. These patients were all subsequently found to have laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infections as the likely cause of their thrombotic event. The primary presentation of COVID-19 infection as a thrombotic event rather than with respiratory symptoms has not been described elsewhere. Our cases and discussion highlight the thrombotic complications caused by COVID-19; we discuss management of these patients and explore the role of anticoagulation in patients diagnosed with COVID-19.
