Globally, COVID-19 is a viral disease that has become a public health challenge in 2020. COVID-19 is caused by a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV 2, that was first discovered in the Hubei province of China and it commonly manifests as a respiratory illness but also with symptoms ranging from mild myalgia to severe pneumonia. As our primitive understanding of this novel virus has evolved, COVID-19 has been shown to present in atypical non-pulmonary clinical manifestations, such as diarrhea, acute kidney injury, hepatic and cardiovascular abnormalities, blood coagulation and stroke along with loss of some special senses. We consolidated the publicly available information to precisely summarize the knowledge about the significant non-respiratory clinical manifestations of COVID-19.
