CHICAGO — Igor J. Koralnik, MDdiscusses highlights from his presentation at the 2022 American Neurological Association’s annual meeting on long COVID and its effect on the nervous system.
“We saw that neurology was the most frequently visited clinic — ahead of pulmonology and cardiology — showing that as much as COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, long COVID is really, predominantly affecting the nervous system,” Koralnik, chief of neuroinfectious diseases and global neurology and professor of neurology at Northwestern Medicine Feinberg School of Medicine, said.
