Jul 21st, 2020 - Identify clinical and radiographic features of venous infarct as a presenting feature of COVID-19 in the young. SARS-CoV-2 infection causes hypercoagulability and inflammation leading to venous thrombotic events (VTE). Although elderly patients with comorbidities are at higher risk, COVID-19 may also cause VTE in a broader patient population without these risks. Neurologic complications and man...

Jul 18th, 2020 - Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS- CoV-2) is the etiologic agent of COVID-19, a disease that as of July 10, 2020, has infected over 12 million people and killed over 500,000. COVID-19 infection leads to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in a subset of patients and is a primary driver of acute morbidity in infected persons. However, it is becoming increasingly clear ...

Jun 19th, 2020 - COVID-19 is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome virus SARS-CoV-2. It is widely recognized as a respiratory pathogen, but neurologic complications can be the presenting manifestation in a subset of infected patients. We describe a 78-year old immunocompromised woman who presented with altered mental status after witnessed seizure-like activity at home. She was found to have SARS-CoV-...

Jun 17th, 2020 - There is growing evidence that Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has a neurotropic and neuroinvasive potential. In particular, neurologic complications associated with the infection by SARS-CoV-2 include strokes that may result from a dysregulated inflammatory response to the infection. We report an atypical deep cerebral vein thrombosis complicated with hemorrhagic v...

May 14th, 2020 - There are questions and challenges regarding neurologic complications in COVID-19 patients. EEG is a safe and efficient tool for the evaluation of brain function, even in the context of COVID-19. However, EEG technologists should not be put in danger if obtaining an EEG does not significantly advance diagnosis or change management in the patient. Not every neurologic problem stems from a primar...
