With time, newer pulmonary and extrapulmonary manifestations of postacute coronavirus disease (COVID) syndrome are being reported. This is a case report of a 67-year-old diabetic and hypertensive female who presented with persistent progressive cough and breathlessness 2 months after she was diagnosed and treated for COVID-19. The patient was admitted and worked up as a case of postacute COVID syndrome. She was radiologically detected to have diffuse, large, multiple cystic air-filled cavitary lesions all over the lungs bilaterally. Despite adequate treatment and support with oxygen supplementation, the patient's condition kept on worsening, and she was thus referred to a higher center for cardiothoracic vascular surgical intervention.
