Resumo


The infection caused by the new coronavirus had its first case described in December 2019, in Wuhan, China, and reached a pandemic status in March 2020. Since then, knowledge about the different aspects of this infection has evolved, as well as increased reports concerning related neurological manifestations. Thus, the neurologist assumes a fundamental role in the care of these patients, who may have a clinical phenotype that goes beyond respiratory aspects. In the present study, we highlight the data available in the literature so far regarding the main neurological implications related to COVID-19 infection, in addition to calling attention for some aspects related to patients with previous neurological diseases who contract this infection.
