ABSTRACT

Since the December of 2019 there has been an increase in reporting of cerebrovascular events in patients infected with COVID-19. Though it is a common complication which is encountered mostly in the old age it is rare to witness the same in young patient in the absence of prior risk factors. We report a rare case of a young patient with COVID-19 postivie status who presented with a hyper acute infarct in left caudate nucleus, Lenti from nucleus, internal capsule, insular cortex, temporal lobe, parieto-occipital region, focal areas in frontal region and was immediately posted for thrombectomy. The patient improved drastically post procedure. Therefore we highlight the importance of contemplating the differential of stroke induced by COVID-19 even in young patients who present with symptoms consistent with a stroke in the ongoing pandemic.
