An outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, and has rapidly spread around the world to become a pandemic. Italy was the second epicenter of the spread of the disease and at the time of writing has a total of 222,104 cases and 31,106 deaths. Several studies have described the spectrum of chest imaging features of COVID-19. However, to date, only a few case reports have described COVID-19 associated neuroimaging findings. The purpose of our study was to systematically characterize neurological symptoms and neuroimaging features in hospitalized COVID-19 patients from multiple institutions in Italy.
