Spectrum of hospitalized NeuroCOVID diagnoses from a tertiary care neurology centre in Eastern India

The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which has caused the COVID-19 pandemic is predominantly a respiratory virus with its typical presentation being fever and cough. However, several cases of neurological presentations of COVID-19 from non-specific symptoms (headache, anosmia, fatigue and drowsiness) to more pronounced conditions (stroke, encephalopathy and seizure disorder) were reported [1–3]. Thus, being collectively known as ‘NeuroCOVID’ [4]. In this study, NeuroCOVID has been defined as a severe neurological condition (warranting hospital admission) co-existing with COVID-19 infection.
