A Novel Corona virus, SARS-CoV-2 causing COVID-19 disease has become a global public health problem with varied presentations. The common clinical presentations include pneumonia, myocarditis, gastroenteritis, delirium, though few uncommon cases also came into light showing features of spontaneous pne-umothorax, pneumomediastinum, encephalopathy, stroke, psychosis, bowel ischemia, pancreatitis, thrombosis and adrenal insufficiency. These features were more often seen in critically unwell patients with high morbidity and mortality; presented either late in the disease course or early prior to even common symptoms. Our aim of the article is to summarize 'Uncommon Presentations' which might get misdiagnosed, possibly leading to further transmission or delayed diagnosis resulting in poor outcome.
