A novel coronavirus infection, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is frequently associated with neuromuscular symptoms. It is characterized by taste and smell disturbances, and nonspecific symptoms such as headache and dizziness. Neuromuscular complications such as cerebrovascular disease, encephalopathy, meningoencephalitis, peripheral neuropathy, and myositis/myopathy have been reported to date. In daily clinical practice, it is important to consider COVID-19 as a differential diagnosis, because these symptoms may be the first warning signs.
