A significant percentage of patients treated in hospitals for coronavirus experience a variety of neurological symptoms, including strokes and confusion, UC researchers reported in a new study.
The study, led by Abdelkader Mahammedi, MD, assistant professor of radiology at UC and a UC Health neuroradiologist, and published in the journal Radiology, found nearly a third of patients with evidence of neurological problems turned out to have suffered a stroke, and close to 60% were very confused or disoriented.
