The World Health Organization was notified on December 31, 2019, that a cluster of pneumonia patients with an unknown origin had been discovered in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 caused the pneumonia (coronavirus disease 2019 [COVID-19]). Fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath are among the most prevalent symptoms described by COVID-19 patients. In this case series, we discuss three cases of patients presenting with deep vein thrombosis for which they underwent inferior vena cava filter placement with thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy. These cases were unusual as they belong to the moderate category of COVID rather than severe category which commonly presents with coagulopathy.
