    We describe a 90-year-old male TRANS presenting with disequilibrium, loss of balance and difficulty walking HP for three days prior to initial presentation. Interestingly, he denied cough HP, fever HP fever MESHD or dyspnea MESHD dyspnea HP prior to arrival. Over the course of 48 hours, the patient developed acute respiratory distress syndrome MESHD respiratory distress HP syndrome ( ARDS MESHD) requiring intubation, diagnosed with COVID-19 MESHD infection and was treated in the intensive care unit where he died. Since the initial cases in Wuhan China in Dec 2019, the medical and epidemiological communities have learned much about the presenting features, symptomatology, epidemiology, transmission TRANS and common physical, laboratory and radiological findings of this disease. Although common symptoms are already established, it is very important to learn and record atypical symptoms or presentations of this highly contagious disease. By doing so, we will be able to recognize earlier atypical symptoms and prevent the environmental exposure to Health care workers and future patients as well. We report that Central disequilibrium may be such as initial presenting sign and symptom of impending respiratory failure HP respiratory failure MESHD from SARS-CoV-2 virus. These atypical findings such as presyncope HP may precede common respiratory complications of SARS-CoV-2.
