Hydroxychloroquine is no miracle cure for covid-19 infection -imaging and clinical course in an elderly female.
Wiad Lek. 2020; 73(7):1583-1585.WL

Abstract

The risk for an unfavourable course of SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia rises with age and comorbidities. We report the case of an elderly female where the sum of such factors - together with massive findings in the computed tomography of the lung - led us to a therapy with hydroxychloroquine as a compassionate use. The unfavourable outcome demonstrates that - despite the enthusiasm of some authors - hydroxychloroquine is no miracle drug. The worldwide SOLIDARITY trial will help clinicians to assess the potential of the repurposed antimalarial drugs better.
