ABSTRACT
Among the several medical specialties, anesthesiologists are probably the most affected ones from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic as they are at the frontline. In the present stage of the pandemic, where we are observing community transmission, more people with elective neurologic and neurosurgical problems are likely to be tested positive for this virulent disease. Neuroanesthesiologists play an important role in the perioperative period and in neuroradiology suite. It is imperative to know the best available ways by which health care providers can manage their patients and also necessary steps to prevent the spread of infection, not only amongst themselves but also between patients. A high index of suspicion in such patients may help avoid delay in diagnosis and catastrophic sequelae. An overall knowledge about the disease will help plan the clinical management of neurologic patients, during the perioperative period.
