OBJECTIVE: We aimed to estimate the incidence of cerebral sinus and venous thrombosis (CVT) within 1 month from first dose administration and the frequency of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) as the underlying mechanism after vaccination with BNT162b2, ChAdOx1, and mRNA-1273, in Germany. METHODS: A web-based questionnaire was e-mailed to all departments of neurology. We requested a report of cases of CVT occurring within 1 month of a COVID-19 vaccination. Other cerebral ...

Abstract Importance Primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS) is a rare condition which is often misdiagnosed. In order to avoid mistakes in the management, a step by step approach is necessary. Observations The most common presenting symptoms of PACNS are encephalopathy-related cognitive and affective abnormalities, headaches and multifocal symptoms associated with recurrent episodes of ischemia or hemorrhage. Seizures and spinal cord lesions may also occur. Diagnostic work up incl...

Objective: Reports of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) after ChAdOx1 vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 have raised safety concerns and an emerging mechanism termed vaccine induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) was identified. We aimed to estimate the frequency of CVT and other cerebrovascular events after vaccination with BNT162b2, ChAdOx1, and mRNA-1273, 114 German Departments of Neurology participated in a systematic survey. Design: descriptive study. Setting: Germany. Population: Pat...

Neben Storungen und Erkrankungen peripherer Nerven sind in den letzten Monaten im Zusammenhang mit COVID-19 („coronavirus disease 2019“) auch Begleitsymptome und Storungen der Muskulatur bzw. der neuromuskularen Transmission beschrieben worden. Im zweiten Teil unserer Zusammenfassung geben wir eine Ubersicht uber haufig berichtete Symptome wie Myalgien und definierte Erkrankungen wie Rhabdomyolysen, Myositiden, Myasthenie und „intensive care unit acquired weakness“ (ICUAW), die im Rahmen eine SA...

In recent months various disorders and diseases of the peripheral nerves (including cranial nerves) and the musculature have been described in association with the pulmonary disease coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). In the first part of our review the current knowledge about a potential association of a SARS-CoV‑2 infection with dysfunction and diseases of cranial and peripheral nerves is discussed. Anosmia, ageusia, m...
