Abstract

Introduction:Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is one of the drugs used to treat COVID-19. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of IVIG in the treatment of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients.Materials and methods:The patients received IVIG before being intubated. The patients' symptoms, disease severity, clinical features, and chest computed tomography findings were compared between before and after the treatment.Results:Out of 62 patients who received IVIG, 35 patients (56.5) were male, and 27 patients (43.5) were female. Overall, 13 (21) patients died, and 49 (79) recovered and were discharged from the hospital.Conclusion:IVIG can be used as an effective drug to save patients' lives before they enter the intubation phase. © 2022 Lippincott Williams and Wilkins.
