COVID-19 in a Depressed Patient with Generalized Urticaria

Document Type : Case study



Health concerns, changes in lifestyle, job losses, economic hardships, and the death of family members during the Covid-19 pandemic have led to depressive disorders. Here, a 39-year-old man referred to a psychiatric clinic with the complication of depressed mood, which was exacerbated by stress, anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia. In addition, he was referred to a cardiologist and dermatologist because of uncontrolled tachycardia and urticaria. After detailed examination, the final diagnosis was COVID-19, along with anxiety disorder and dermatological diseases.
Since the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) can cause stress and psychological problems, it can disrupt the patient's healing process if ignored. On the other hand, there seems to be a strong association between psychiatric illnesses with COVID-19 and urticaria that can be investigated.
