Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a highly contagious and predominantly pneumonic illness caused by a novel coronavirus now commonly known as SARS-CoV. This article describes the key diagnostic clinical features, radiologic features, and investigation profiles of affected patients. We summarize our understanding from anecdotal experience and limited published data on the use of antiviral and corticosteroid therapy in the management of this highly contagious disease.
