Abstract

A 36-year-old woman developed right leg weakness with foot drop while being treated for COVID-19 pneumonia. Her nerve conduction test and electromyography confirmed right sciatic nerve lesion and MRI scan of the lumbar spine, sciatic nerve, and examination of cerebrospinal fluid were unremarkable. Since there was no other possible explanation, the cause was attributed to a neurological complication of COVID-19 infection.
