Abstract:   (436 Views)
Background and Importance: SARS-CoV-2 virus causes COVID-19. The virus’s primary target is the respiratory system, but it can also affect other systems, such as the cardiovascular and the central nervous system. 
Case Presentation: In this study, we introduce an 83-year-old man who was referred due to a reduced level of consciousness and hemiparesis in the left part of his body without symptoms such as fever, cough, muscle aches, and fatigue. In High-Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) of the lung, the Ground-Glass Opacification/Opacity (GGO) view indicated COVID-19 disease, and in Computerized Tomography (CT) scans of the brain, hemorrhage was evident in the right thalamus, lateral and right ventricle. The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test performed on the upper part of the nose was also positive. This research is a case report of intracranial and intraventricular hemorrhage in an aged man with asymptomatic COVID-19.
Conclusion: Low level of consciousness in the elderly can be a sign of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
