About

Full description

This study is a prospective observational cohort study to document the prevalence and types of neurological manifestations among hospitalized patients with confirmed or suspected novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19). Severe acute respiratory syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19, shares significant structural and biological similarities with SARS-CoV, which is known to be neuroinvasive particularly with brainstem involvement. There are emerging reports of neurological symptoms associated with COVID-19 infections, including seizures, coma, encephalitis, Guillan-Barre syndrome, and cerebrovascular events including ischemic stroke, ICH, and cerebral venous sinus thromboses. However, the exact prevalence of these conditions and their impact on patient disease severity and outcomes is unknown. As the incidence and severity of COVID-19 infection continue to rapidly rise globally, it is imperative to capture prospective data to accurately document prevalence, severity and clinical characterization of neurological components of COVID 19, the influence of treatment regimens of neurological complications, and role of these confounders on patient and organizational outcomes.
