Dear Editor,

COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV2, presents with a broad range of signs and symptoms. Although COVID-19 mainly causes a respiratory syndrome, neurological manifestations have been described in more than a third of patients, both in mild-moderate cases of the infection, as associated or as a complication in severe and critical cases. Anosmia, ageusia, myalgias and headache have been widely described in patients with mild symptoms; while acute cerebrovascular disease, seizures, polyneuritis and encephalopathies have been observed in the most severe cases [1,2].

In this report, we present a patient who was admitted with a diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 multilobar pneumonia who developed a complex cortical visual deficit consistent with a partial Antons syndrome plus simultagnosia.
