BOSTON - A 45-year-old man who suffered from a severe autoimmune disorder had an active coronavirus infection that lasted for five months, and the virus mutated several times inside his body before he ultimately passed away.

The case has drawn attention from researchers about COVID-19 in immunocompromised individuals, and the potential role similar scenarios could have played in emerging coronavirus variants.Last spring, the man went to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston for treatment of COVID-19.

The case was highlighted in a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which described his battle with the virus for 154 days.
