Abstract
In March 2020, we treated a cohort of 26 critically ill hospitalized SARS-CoV-2 infected patients who received EEGs to assess unexplained altered mental status, loss of consciousness, or poor arousal and responsiveness. Of the 26 patients studied, 5 patients had EEGs that showed Periodic Discharges (PD) consisting of high amplitude frontal monomorphic delta waves with absence of epileptic activity. These findings may suggest CNS injury potentially related to COVID-19 in these patients. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
