SARS-CoV-2 infection can express itself in a variety of ways, including gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and minor abdominal pain. Rare manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 infection have become more well-known over time. These uncommon and infrequent manifestations may make it harder to make a quick diagnosis, as well as lead to unnecessary investigations, longer hospital admissions, negative outcomes, and a greater burden on health care resources. We submitted a case to our hospital with a picture that resembled an acute abdomen, demanding surgical diagnosis and assessment. The case was found to be SARS-CoV-2 positive and did not require surgery. The importance of abdominal symptoms in the context of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) has been discussed for better evaluation of COVID-related conditions.
