In this case report, a 53-year old man died after ten days with fever and coughing and was tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). A post-mortem CT disclosed ground-glass opacities with focal consolidation in both lungs. At autopsy, the lungs were dark and heavy with increased consistency and without pleural fibrin. Microscopy of lung tissue showed diffuse alveolar damage with hyaline membranes, sparse chronic interstitial inflammation and foci of bronchopneumonia. The deceased was a non-smoker, who did not suffer from a serious illness. He was overweight (BMI = 34 kg/m2), an emerging predictor for poor outcome of COVID-19.
