Abstract
Patient suffering from autoimmune diseases (AID) typically have an increased risk of infection, which is attributed to the disease itself, but also to immunosuppressive drugs (IS) and comorbidities. During the current COVID-19 outbreak, the way to manage these diseases remains elusive. Limited data is currently available on AID and IS in the context of this new coronavirus infection. To date, there is no evidence to support an increase in complications of COVID-19 in these patients. In addition, certain drugs that are commonly used to treat AID could be part of the therapeutic arsenal used in COVID-19. The purpose of this article is to review the unique aspects of patients with AID during the COVID-19 outbreak.
