Viral infections have been associated with the deleterious damage to nervous system resulting in impairment of the central nervous system as late sequalae infections. Since the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2), several studies have reported patients developing adverse neurological signs and symptoms. Like the outbreak of SARS in 2003, the recent outbreak has undermined the norm of the nervous system. This review will summarize the possible mechanism of neurological manifestations, the clinical presentations of patients with such symptoms secondary to SARS coronaviruses, and the prospective role of neurology and neurosurgery practice in managing these symptoms in the current climate.
