Nishant Patel*, Richa Aggarwal, Venkata Ganesh, Manpreet Kaur, Kapil Dev Soni and Anjan Trikha

Several Neurologic manifestations have been found in COVID. But there is very little literature on cerebral venous thrombosis association with COVID. We herein report an unusual presentation of patients infected with COVID19 i.e. CVT in 2 patients. We should be aware of this atypical manifestation and early management can have a favourable prognosis. It is prudent to administer vitamin therapy in COVID patients with elevated d-dimer or homocysteine levels due to the risk of CVT. COVID-19 virus is neurotropic and is potentially associated with hypercoagulable state. Neurological symptoms appear either as first symptoms or with respiratory symptoms or anytime during the disease course. Neurological manifestations range from altered sensorium, acute cerebrovascular disease to seizures.
