Rationale: The COVID-19 virus with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) has a remarkable effect on morbidity and mortality. Non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) is a category of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) that may represent a primary cardiac manifestation of COVID-19 disease. The QRS-complex fragmentation had been considered a hallmark of structural heart disease. Wavy triple, an electrocardiographic sign (Yasser’s sign) is a new specific diagnostic sign and therapeutic guide for hypocalcemia. Immunosuppression is a shared criterion for both cancers such as lymphomas and COVID-19 virus infection. Objectives: This case study aimed to clarify the role of COVID-19 viral pneumonia, chemotherapy, and Hodgkin lymphoma in the probability of the current case deterioration. Patient concerns: A 70-year-old, housewife, widow female, Egyptian patient was presented to the emergency department with COVID-19 pneumonia with Non-ST elevation myocardial infarction recently diagnosed as Hodgkin lymphoma. Methods: This is a retrospective-observational case study. Diagnosis: COVID pneumonia with Non-ST elevation myocardial infarction, QRS-complex fragmentation, and Wavy triple electrocardiographic sign (Yasser’s sign) in Hodgkin lymphoma disease. Interventions: CT pulmonary angiography, electrocardiography, and oxygenation. Outcomes: Bad response and poor outcomes in the presence of numerous remarkable serious risk factors were the results. Lessons: Hypocalcemia with Wavy triple electrocardiographic sign (Yasser’s sign) and not hypercalcemia is a new description association that may be present in a malignancy. The association of COVID pneumonia with the recent use of chemotherapy in Hodgkin lymphoma is highly interesting in case of deterioration and away to death. An elderly age, female sex, COVID-19 pneumonia, Non-ST elevation myocardial infarction, sinus tachycardia, QRS-complex fragmentation, Wavy triple electrocardiographic signs (Yasser’s sign), and Hodgkin lymphoma disease are constellation serious risk factors.
