ABSTRACT: Objective: To point out the neuroanatomic repercussions that the Post-COVID Syndrome triggers in individuals and address the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Literature review: COVID-19 is an acute viral respiratory disease. Post-COVID-19 Syndrome gets its name because it is a set of clinical manifestations that persist for longer than two or three weeks after the onset of symptoms. Among the related disorders, neuroanatomical sequelae stand out, such as injuries with the ability to generate significant morbidity and mortality. Final considerations: It is concluded that this syndrome is associated with relevant sequelae, such as in the Central Nervous System. There were descriptions of different neurological manifestations such as stroke, ageusia, headache, Guillain-Barré syndrome, encephalopathy, anosmia, and dizziness. It is essential to further studies to support patient management with the best evidence to reduce morbidities.
