    Background: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a highly infectious disease MESHD, mainly causing respiratory symptoms. However, a few patients may also have neurological symptoms MESHD. Herein, we report a case of COVID-19 infection MESHD complicated with Bell’s palsy.Case presentation: A 65-year-old woman was admitted due to left facial drooping. Physical examination showed left peripheral facial paralysis HP paralysis MESHD. Brain MRI showed no abnormality. However, the chest CT revealed the ground-glass shadows in the right lower lung. The real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) results for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 MESHD (SARS-CoV-2) RNA were positive through throat swabs, while the common influenza virus antigens were tested negative. The symptoms of left facial paralysis HP paralysis MESHD relieved after antiviral treatment. She patient was discharged in the context of 3 consecutively negative RT-PCR test results for SARS-CoV-2 RNA and complete absorption of the right lung lesions MESHD. Conclusion: This case suggests that COVID-19 may be presented with Bell’s palsy MESHD and may be a potential cause of facial paralysis HP facial paralysis MESHD.
