The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2 appeared in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and quickly spread around the world and is considered a global pandemic. This disease, which is pre-infected with respiratory and cardiovascular system symptoms, can also occur in many organ systems. Since the beginning of the pandemic, cases related to neurological involvement have been reported in the literature and studies coercing neurological findings and complications have been published. COVID-19 can cause wide spectrum of neurological phenotypes from severe to milder. To the best of our knowledge, our case is the first report describing the chorea in a patient associated with COVİD-19. In this article, we aim to present a patient who was admitted with chorea on the 3rd day of the COVID-19 followed by Sydenham chorea, which had already improved. This report expands the phenotypic spectrum of COVID-19 and suggests that COVID-19 can be associated with or trigger chorea. © 2021 Published by Elsevier Inc.
