Abstract

© 2020 Elsevier Inc. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a global pandemic, and it is increasingly important that physicians recognize and understand its atypical presentations. Neurological symptoms such as anosmia, altered mental status, headache, and myalgias may arise due to direct injury to the nervous system or by indirectly precipitating coagulopathies. We present the first COVID-19 related cases of carotid artery thrombosis and acute PRES-like leukoencephalopathy with multifocal hemorrhage.
