Immune-mediated neurological syndrome in SARS-CoV-2 infection: a review of literature on autoimmune encephalitis in COVID-19

ConclusionIn conclusion, SARSCoV-2 infection can induce various spectrum of autoimmune encephalitis. It is a major concern since there is very limited long-term study on the topic. Hence, this review aims to elucidate on the potential long-term complication of SARS-CoV-2 infection and hopefully to improve the management and prognosis of COVID-19.

​Since the start of global pandemic caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), at least four waves have occurred as mutations and variant strains have developed. During the first waves, adults were the primary target, but the highly infectious delta variant has been infecting children and unvaccinated adults with a vengeance.On this go-round, the delta variant is predominately infecting children. I am seeing reports of high school football games being canceled, schools deciding to go virtual, and occasional reports of teachers dying of COVID. I have never seen anything like this pandemic ...

World J Gastroenterol. 2021 May 28;27(20):2576-2585. doi: 10.3748/wjg.v27.i20.2576.ABSTRACTStarting from December 2019 the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has extended in the entire world giving origin to a pandemic. Although the respiratory system is the main apparatus involved by the infection, several other organs may suffer coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)-related injuries. The human tissues expressing angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) are all possible targets of viral damage. In fact myocarditis, meningo-encephalitis, acute kidney injury and other complications have been described ...

Recognition of the association between acute and subacute different neuropsychiatric manifestations with the infection by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the cause of the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, is progressively being recognized [1]. The potential emergence of late onset neuropsychiatric manifestations after infection with SARS-CoV-2 remains to be discussed. After the “Spanish” influenza pandemic in the 20th century, an outbreak of encephalitis lethargica (EL) [2], a neuropsychiatric disorder of possible autoimmune origin emerged occurring soon after t...
