ABSTRACT

A 71-year-old woman with no previous medical history was admitted to our hospital with fever and dyspnea following coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) mRNA vaccination. Based on her symptoms, physical examination findings, imaging results, and disease course, the diagnosis of vaccine-induced interstitial pneumonitis was made. Treatment with a glucocorticoid relieved her symptoms. The symptoms recurred after a gradual decrease in glucocorticoid over a period of two months. The glucocorticoid was increased to 15 mg and the symptoms subsided. This is a rare case of interstitial pneumonitis following COVID-19 mRNA vaccination.
