One of the leading researchers, Dr. James Melville (James Melville), knew about 9 COVID-19 patients. In fact, this is a relatively common disease, but to a lesser degree than those patients.
He said that these are what we think of as large-scale or giant macroeconomics, and they are extremely rare.
One of the patients he treated, Anthony Jones, woke up after surviving a critical case of COVID-19, which caused him to lie down on a ventilator and his tongue to swell more than normal.
He eventually recovered, but Dr. Melville and other doctors are still confused about the possible causes of the rare complications
Dr. Melville treated the first two cases of COVID-related macroeye at the beginning of the pandemic last year.
According to the “Daily Mail” report, since then, there have been 7 new cases related to COVID-19, and each case is a large-scale and rare version of this situation.
One case is Anthony Jones, a man in Houston who became ill after receiving viral treatment. Jones must use a ventilator to control the virus.
When he woke up after treatment, his tongue was so swollen that he could not speak or eat. Dr. Melville must perform surgery to reduce the size of Jones’ tongue and relieve inflammation.
The operation was a success, but the doctor still doesn’t know the cause of Jones complicated macroglossia
Dr. Melville believes that inflammation is caused by inflammation and swelling of other organs in the human body after being infected with the virus.
There are reports that some people expand their hearts or other organs after being infected with the virus. He said: “We found that COVID-19 positive patients in other organs of our corpses that were autopsied had similar histological characteristics, so we can say kidney, lung or heart. ”
I think the (cases) and histology we found indicate that COVID may be a more exaggerated inflammatory response to the tongue, which may cause tongue swelling, but this is the whole work of the research and I am trying to prove this.
Typical causes of macroglossia include stroke and prolonged lying on the stomach, just like Jones did when he was in the hospital.
He believes that patients who may need COVID-19 ventilator breathing during hospitalization sometimes roll on their stomachs to help them improve their breathing.Dr. Melville is trying to find other factors that cause the swelling of the tongue.
