Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) disease leads to a hypercoagulable state and associated with thrombotic events that can cause mortality and morbidity. Thrombotic events include both venous and arterial thrombosis. In this case report, we present a 68-year-old COVID-19 patient with multisystemic infarction who was admitted to the hospital by splenic infarction and later pulmonary embolism diagnosed during the stay in hospital despite anticoagulant use. It is important for emergency physicians to know that patients who had COVID-19 infection but not confirmed or not tested can visit the emergency department due to complications of COVID-19 infection such as thromboembolic events primarily.
