Pandemic situation of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) represents a challenging condition with a plethora of aspects. Symptoms of patients with immune mediated inflammatory diseases (IMID) such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and different rheumatic diseases are not well described.
We conducted a prospective questionnaire-based study (04/2022 – 10/2022) at our university medical center. Outward patients over the age of 18 years were screened. Participating patients reported about their individual COVID-19 history during pandemic´s course.
Discrimination between symptoms of COVID-19 in contrast to chronic IMID condition can be difficult as complaints might be overlapping.
