Authors

This is the clinical case of an elderly man suffering from stabilized polypathology, affected by remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema syndrome following anti-COVID vaccines, with evidence of persistent hypomagnesemia, coexisting chronic hypogammaglobulinemia and normochromic normocytic anemia. Although we investigated potential links between these conditions, the case remains partially unresolved.
