          Abstract

          It is of crucial importance to diagnose patients in a timely and clear manner during the outbreak of COVID-19. Different causes of pneumonia makes it difficult to differentiate COVID-19 from others. Hemodialysis patients are a special group of people in this outbreak. We present a successfully treated case of a patient with maintenance hemodialysis from acute eosinophilic pneumonia for using meropenem when treating bacterial pneumonia, avoiding possible panic and waste of quarantine materials in dialysis centers.

          Acute eosinophilic pneumonia (AEP) is an uncommon disease, often indistinguishable from ARDS or community-acquired pneumonia at initial presentation. AEP can be idiopathic, but identifiable causes include medications and inhalational exposures, including cigarette smoke.
