Two rare neurologic conditions in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 add more evidence that unusual neurologic manifestations can arise in patients infected with the virus.
A 50-year-old man developed Miller Fisher syndrome and a 39-year-old man developed polyneuritis cranialis.
In both cases, physicians made the diagnoses based on abnormal eye examinations. The two patients responded to treatment and improved over 2 weeks, with only the 50-year-old featuring residual symptoms of anosmia and ageusia.
The report was published online April 17 in Neurology.
