Although non-urgent hospital visits should be avoided during the pandemic, patients with chronic neurological diseases still require a specialist even in such a situation. Telemedicine is a favorable solution to improve patients' access to specialists, and its use has rapidly accelerated worldwide. The need for telemedicine in neurological disorders, the brief history of telemedicine in Japan before and after the pandemic, and how to set up online visits and perform virtual neurological examinations will be discussed in this review.
