Patients with COVID-19 Also May Have Neurological Symptoms

A new study from Italy finds that patients hospitalized with COVID-19, besides physical symptoms, also have neurological symptoms, such as altered mental status and stroke.Patients with COVID-19 Also May Have Neurological Symptoms

For the study, a team of researchers analyzed records of patients treated at the University of Brescia, the University of Eastern Piedmont, and the University of Sassari (all in Italy). They found that 15% of patients experienced neurological symptoms.

According to the researchers, the most common neurological symptoms were “altered mental state,” which 59% of the patients experienced, and ischemic strokes, which 31% of the patients experienced.

 Lead study author Dr. Mahammedi, an assistant professor of radiology at the University of Cincinnati says: “This topic definitely needs more research. Currently, we have a poor understanding of the neurological symptoms in COVID-19 patients, whether these are arising from critical illness or from direct central nervous system invasion of SARS-CoV-2. We hope further study on this subject will help in uncovering clues and providing better interventions for patients.”
