From the beginning of the pandemic to the current moment, more than three million people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the world. The most frequent symptoms are fever, cough, myalgia and respiratory distress. However, as the pandemic progresses, more gastrointestinal symptoms have been notified. Among them, hiporexia, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. There may also be hipertransaminasemia. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease may be benefited by certain treatment modifications. Caution should be exercised during endoscopies. All of these topics are discussed in this review.
