The COVID-19 infection causes a severe form of viral pneumonia in a proportion of the infected patients. Over the last 1 year, a lot of typical and atypical radiological changes in COVID pneumonia have been documented. These radiological appearances can help in the diagnosis of COVID infection even before genetic test results are available. While some of these signs are nonspecific and found in a lot of other infections, there are a few signs that have been newly described specifically during the current pandemic. Here, we present such a rare sign in a patient from Eastern India.
