Clinical course of inpatients with neurologic disease and COVID-19: a retrospective analysis

Takeaway

  • Among individuals with neurologic disorders, those with COVID-19 typically have worse clinical and neurologic outcomes and a higher in-hospital mortality rate.

Why this matters

    Identifying potential risk factors, such as thrombocytopenia and a higher quick Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) score, may help clinicians identify individuals with poor prognosis at an early stage.
