Clinical Spectrum of Neurological Manifestations in Pediatric COVID-19 Illness: A Case Series.
J Trop Pediatr. 2021 07 02; 67(3)JT

Abstract

We describe a cohort of three patients with variable neurological presentations by SARS-COV-2 infection. It includes one case each of acute cerebellitis, acute encephalomyelitis and arterial ischemic stroke. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first pediatric case of acute cerebellitis due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. All critically ill patients were treated with methylprednisolone pulse therapy and dexamethasone. Patient with acute cerebellitis in addition required intravenous immunoglobulin infusion. All the patients responded to the treatment with complete neurological recovery.
