Case series/case reports (Indigo)
Coronavirus disease have been reported to be associated with several neurological manifestations such as stroke, Guillain-Barré syndrome, meningoencephalitis amongst others. There are only few reported cases of transverse myelitis with SARS-CoV-2 and only one reported case identifying dysautonomia in COVID-19 patient. The objective of this article was to report a unique case and literature review of post COVID-19 associated transverse myelitis and dysautonomia with abnormal MRI and CSF findings. In particular, a retrospective chart review of a patient diagnosed with post SARS-CoV-2 infection acute transverse myelitis and dysautonomia, and a review of literature of all the reported cases of transverse myelitis and COVID-19, from December 1st, 2019 till December 25th, 2020, was performed. The authors concluded that further studies would be recommended to identify the underlying correlation between COVID-19 and transverse myelitis.
