SARS-CoV-2 related pneumonia in an adult with cystic fibrosis: natural favourable clinical course or effective therapy?
We report the case of a man affected by cystic fibrosis who developed a severe SARS-CoV-2 related pneumonia in March 2020. In addition to lopinavir/ritonavir and hydroxychloroquine, he was treated with two doses of tocilizumab, displaying a significant clinical improvement. This is the first case described in the literature of an adult patient affected by cystic fibrosis who received tocilizumab for COVID-19, with documented total recovery, also assessed by a spirometry.
