Palabras clave: SARS-CoV-2; Anosmia; Daño cerebral


La infección por SARS-Cov-2 se ha relacionado con daño cerebral y alteración del sistema neurológico olfativo, manifestado por la clínica de anosmia. El objetivo fundamental de este estudio es evidenciar cambios radiológicos consistentes con las alteraciones neurológicas descritas tras la infección por COVID-19.


SARS-Cov-2 infection has been related to brain damage and alteration of the olfactory neurological system, manifested by the clinical signs of anosmia. The main objective of this study is to demonstrate radiological changes consistent with the neurological alterations described after COVID-19 infection.
