Autopsy Result Showing the Damage Caused by COVID-19 to the Brain

by copytalkie

A study on the brains of 19 people who died due to COVID-19 promises to explain the neurological symptoms caused by the disease. According to the study, COVID-19 causes mini brain hemorrhages.

Caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus COVID-19 It is now known by all that the disease has more severe effects on the human body than an ordinary disease. But a new study from the US National Institute of Health (NIH) reveals that it can have greater effects on people than we think.

It has been known since the beginning of the pandemic that COVID-19 harms the respiratory system, causes stomach and intestinal ailments, can cause heart damage and blood clotting. A new autopsy study performed on those who died due to COVID-19, headache, memory loss, dizziness, weakness, hallucinationuncovered data that could help explain neurological symptoms such as severe seizures and strokes.

Some COVID-19 patients experience mini brain hemorrhages

According to some estimates, almost 50 percent of COVID-19 patients hospitalized are too weak to even perform daily activities such as preparing meals. severe neurological symptoms passing. NIH clinical director Avindra Nath stated that they thought that the neurological symptoms were caused by oxygen deficiency before the study; he states that they have seen brain damage at many points as a result of the autopsy.

Doctors Myoung-Hwa Lee and Avindra Nath closely examined the brains of 19 people who died due to COVID-19 in the study in question. These people ranged in age from 5 to 73 years, and most of them had diabetes or cardiovascular disease. “High risk group” were people. Lee identified 10 patients with brain abnormalities by MRI microscopy; When the brains of these patients were examined closely, hyperintensities and fibrinogen leakage were discovered.

Strong immune response caused by COVID-19 may be causing more damage to the brain than the virus itself


According to the findings of scientists, patients who had brain damage due to COVID-19 were experiencing mini-brain hemorrhages. Moreover, according to the statements made, COVID-19 patients who show neurological symptoms are not only people whose condition is severe enough to be placed in intensive care or are in a high risk group. Those who do not have any disease and are not in the high risk group Young and healthy individuals can also show neurological symptoms when they catch COVID-19.

The interesting thing is; Dr. Lee and his team during their studies no trace of SARS-COV-2 in the brain. Nevertheless, there is a possibility that the SARS-COV-2 in the brain may have been cleared after the patients died, or the virus was found too low to be detected in tests.

While Avindra Nath stated that his studies revealed important findings; On the other hand, he states that since it is performed on a small sample, he cannot produce a definite result. According to the shared report on the study, the findings suggest that the strong immune response caused by COVID-19 harms the brain more than COVID-19. supports previous reports. Dr. Finally, Nath stated that they plan to study how COVID-19 damages the blood vessels of the brain in the future.
