Abstract

Based on the results of recent studies, the presence of lymphopenia has been suggested as a predictor factor in patients with Quid-19. This study aimed to evaluate the association between lymphopenia and disease severity in Covid 19 patients with single pulmonary nodule. Materials & Methods: This study is a descriptive-correlational study that was performed on 32 Covid-19 patients with single pulmonary nodule. In this study, demographic characteristicsand information about laboratory data such as lymphopenia as well as radiological findings of patients were collected and analyzed using Chi-square, independent t-test and regression logistics. Results: The results showed that most of the patients participating in the study (68.8%) were male with a mean age of 38.9 years. There was a statistically significant association between lymphopenia and disease severity (P = 0.039), while there was no significant association between age, sex, and nodule type with disease severity (P> 0.05). Conclusion:Lymphopenia is a valid predictor for disease severity and mortality in patients with Covid-19.
