SARS-CoV-2, resulting in COVID-19, can cause cognitive dysfunction. Patients with SARS-CoV-2, for instance, can be affected by executive and mnestic difficulties. Furthermore, some patients with SARS-CoV-2 and ischemic stroke can present with more focal and isolated cognitive dysfunctions. Priftis et al. reported a patient (i.e. LA) who showed agraphia without alexia (pure agraphia), together with some signs of conduction aphasia. By contrast, LA’s other cognitive functions were largely preserved.
