Various neurological manifestations involving the central and peripheral nervous system have been reported in association with COVID-19. Most common associations reported are encephalopathy, headache, ischemic, hemorrhagic stroke and transient ischemic attack, Miller Fisher syndrome, cranial neuropathies and Guillain-Barre syndrome. Of the cranial neuropathies, anosmia, and dysgeusia are the most common reported symptoms. This is a case of COVID-19 with ipsilateral fifth and seventh cranial nerve involvement with complete resolution of symptoms over a period of 3 weeks. The neurological symptoms started within 5 days of respiratory symptoms. We conclude that isolated cranial neuropathies can be the manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
