A 55-years-old male patient was proved for COVID-19 infection. He presented to the emergency unit during the second week of infection with severe abdominal pain and vomiting. Mesenteric CT arteriography and venography were performed without oral preparation. [A, B] Axial images of abdominal CT at the arterial phase revealed dilatation of the small bowel loops (ileus), meanwhile, some of the distal peripheral arcades of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) are non opacified (red square) with stranding of the surrounding fat planes and minimal mural thickening of the supplied ileal loops. [C] Coronal image of abdominal CT at the arterial phase with MIP reconstruction demonstrated the severely attenuated distal SMA arcades inferiorly. [D] Coronal image (lung window) at the same left showed left basal ground-glass COVID-19 pneumonic patch
