For October 2020, we have selected the following Covid-19 paper: Hernández-Fernández F. et al. Cerebrovascular disease in patients with COVID-19: neuroimaging, histological and clinical description. Brain 2020 Jul 9;awaa239. doi: 10.1093/brain/awaa239. Online ahead of print.
In this study recently published in Brain, the authors collected detailed clinical and paraclinical data from patients with suspected COVID-19-related neurological disorders in whom the diagnosis of COVID-19 was confirmed through RNA PCR, or where the diagnosis was probable/possible according to World Health Organisation criteria.
In this paper, the authors report a case of a previously healthy 58-year-old man who acutely developed hyposmia, generalised myoclonus, fluctuating and transient changes in level of consciousness, opsoclonus and an asymmetric hypokinetic-rigid syndrome with ocular abnormalities following severe SARS-CoV-2 infection.
