Neurology and COVID-19

In the earlier days of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic | involvement by neurologists seemed useless. The virus was leading to a respiratory illness for the brain and the rest part of the nervous system. It quickly changed the perspective of neurologists worldwide and focused efforts toward both understanding the mechanisms responsible for this neurologic involvement and devising systems of care to identify and effectively treat these increasingly recognized complications. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed neurosurgeons and neurologists directly in the middle of a health care system that challenged to provide care for large numbers of patients with this emerging disease. While there are more neurologic questions than answers at this stage | the focus of academic neurologists and those in community practice needs to remain on rapidly and effectively understanding the technique | diagnosis | and treatment of COVID-19–related neurologic syndromes during this generational health care crisis.
