Long-COVID phenotypes and small fiber neuropathy

Published:November 08, 2022DOI:
      Grisanti et al. report on the features of a cohort of patients with neurological post-COVID manifestations in a prospective study aimed at definition of phenotypes, identifying the subgroups of long-COVID type 1 (neuropsychiatric phenotype) and long-COVID type 2 (characterized by symptoms related to peripheral nervous system –PNS- involvement) [
