New Microbes New Infect. 2020 Mar 27;35:100669. doi: 10.1016/j.nmni.2020.100669. eCollection 2020 May.


Pneumonia appears to be the most common manifestation of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), but some extrapulmonary involvement, such as gastrointestinal, cardiac and renal, has been reported. The limited clinical data about the virus's behavior to date, especially extrapulmonary symptoms, suggest that we should be aware of the possibility of initial cerebrovascular manifestations of COVID-19.

Keywords: COVID-19; Central nervous system; extrapulmonary; intracerebral haemorrhage; involvement; symptoms.
