Unusual Presentation of COVID-19 Disease Leading to Respiratory Distress and Coma
KeywordsComa, COVID-19, Guillain-Barré syndrome, respiratory failure
Multiple neurological complications including Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) have been associated with COVID-19. We describe a case of GBS related to SARS-CoV-2 infection with an unusual presentation beginning with mobilization problems at home without previous classic respiratory or general manifestations. Asymptomatic infection with COVID-19 can lead to critical situations with respiratory insufficiency because of neurological complications such as GBS.
