Abstract

Introduction: There is a wide range of symptoms of COVID-19 in the literature. The most common neurological manifestations are confusion, headache and loss of sense of taste and smell. Only a few studies described seizures in COVID-19 patients. Individuals with severe cerebral palsy have difficulties in expressing their complaints due to mental retardation, cognition problems or speech problems, so these patients also experience diagnostic delays in their internal problems. This case report emphasize the need for increased awareness of neurological symptoms in adult disabled individuals.
