Wild hallucinations seen in long-term COVID-19 case

A young man developed coronavirus-induced leukoencephalopathy about one month after testing positive, say US doctors

A young man developed wild hallucinations nearly one month after testing COVID-19 positive, in a case doctors say provides further proof the virus impacts the central nervous system.

US doctors have shared the case of a 30-year-old who developed a peculiar and previously unreported constellation of neurological findings due to coronavirus-induced leukoencephalopathy.

The symptoms emerged about one month after he was first hospitalised with COVID-19 and after he had been discharged to an outpatient facility.
