COVID-19 associated encephalitis as an evident etiology of altered consciousness has been rarely reported in the literature. Case Report: A case of 66-year-old female presented with classic COVID-19 symptoms and associated diabetic ketoacidosis. Although diabetic ketoacidosis was managed, the patient had persistent impaired level of consciousness with recurrent attacks of left focal fits because of COVID-19-associated encephalitis. However, the patient has markedly improved after recovering from COVID-19. Conclusion: Neurologists should be involved in the evaluation and management of COVID-19 patients who present with associated neurological problems. Copyright © 2021 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
