    Resumen del Autor: AbstractThe 2019 coronavirus disease pandemic (COVID-19) overloads hospitalizations in intensive care units (ICUs) around the world and its severe form is a complex disease that is still being understood. Due to the lack of direct evidence in patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection, guidelines for nutritional management have been based on evidence from critically ill patients in general. Thus, it is known that intense metabolic stress and malnutrition precede the appearance of Beau’s lines.This is the case report of a 58-year-old man with the severe form of COVID-19 hospitalized for 33 days in the ICU and who presented the Beau´s lines after 4 months of discharge, even with the infusion of nutritional therapy following the current recommendations for the critical period of the disease.
