Objective: To investigate the pathological characteristics and the clinical significance of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)-infected pneumonia (termed by WHO as corona virus disease 2019, COVID-19). Methods: Minimally invasive autopsies from lung, heart, kidney, spleen, bone marrow, liver, pancreas, stomach, intestine, thyroid and skin were performed on three patients died of novel coronavirus pneumonia in Chongqing, China. Hematoxylin and eosin staining (HE) and histochemical staining were… 
Pathogenesis of COVID-19; Acute Auto-inflammatory Disease (Endotheliopathica & Leukocytoclastica COVIDicus).
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of the COVID19 pandemic, that has killed one million nine hundred people and infected more the 90 million until end of 2020, has been studied by many researchers. Here, we
Clinico-pathological features in fatal COVID-19 infection: a preliminary experience of a tertiary care center in North India using postmortem minimally invasive tissue sampling
TLDR
Predominant finding was diffuse alveolar damage with demonstration of SARS-CoV-2 protein in the acute phase, which suggests that liver might be a primary target of Covid-19.
Pathological features of COVID-19 infection from biopsy and autopsy series.
TLDR
There is now evidence the disease may affect variety of organs according to accumulating biopsy and autopsy studies, and such pathological studies have potential role on the understanding of clinical outcomes and in the development of novel targeted therapeutic approaches.
A Review of Postmortem Findings in Patients With COVID-19
TLDR
The postmortem gross and histopathological findings of various organs that have been affected with coronavirus, focusing on the pulmonary, cardiac, and hematologic findings are reviewed.
Changements pathologiques chez les patients infectés par le SRAS-CoV-2: une revue
TLDR
It is shown that SARS-CoV-2 has damaging effects on many organs, probably due to the host immune responses to the presence of the virus, and it is recommended that both antiviral and immunomodulatory agents should be considered in the management of COVID-19 patients.
Lung Pathology in COVID-19: A Systematic Review
TLDR
This review captures the current information on lung histopathology in COVID-19 infection and severe respiratory failure and indicates distinct parenchymal changes, firm thrombi in the peripheral pulmonary vessels along with diffuse alveolar damage, have been the most consistent feature of CO VID-19-related lung pathology.
Morphologically, immunohistochemically and PCR proven lymphocytic viral peri-, endo-, myocarditis in patients with fatal COVID-19
TLDR
Myocarditis in COVID-19 is also characterized by coronaritis with microvascular thrombosis and associated with lymphocytic endo- and pericarditis, and positive PCR confirm the viral nature of inflammation.
Neurological Sequelae in Patients with COVID-19: A Histopathological Perspective
TLDR
A preliminary description of the relationship between SARS-CoV-2 and brain sequelae is provided and it is still unclear whether these findings are the effect of a direct viral pathology or rather reflect a non-specific consequence of cardiovascular and pulmonary disease on the brain.
