To evaluate the effectiveness of the Cytoflavin in patients with dyscirculatory encephalopathy (DE) who had a new coronavirus infection. 82 patients were examined: 16 (19.5%) men and 66 (80.5%) women aged 58 to 80 years, mean age 69±6 years and 70±6 years, respectively. All patients had moderate vascular cognitive impairment (less than 26 points according to the MoCA test), a history of COVID-19 in the period from 3 to 12 months before the start of the study. Patients before COVID-19 were registered with a neurologist with chronic cerebrovascular diseases with non-demented cognitive impairment of vascular origin. Patients of the main group (MG) received the Cytoflavin from the 1st to the 25th day of observation, inclusive, 2 tablets 2 times a day against the background of standard basic therapy. Patients in the comparison group received only standard basic therapy. It was found that during therapy with Cytoflavin, patients noted a positive trend in the form of a decrease in the symptoms of cognitive impairment, improved orientation and working memory, concentration of attention and counting. Also, patients in MG noted a decrease in fatigue and depressive disorders, an increase in motivation and a positive attitude, the emergence of interest in life, an improvement in the emotional background of mood, an increase in physical activity and working capacity. Comparing the mechanisms of development of vascular dysfunction, a pathogenetic commonality between DE and the development of consequences in the form of cognitive impairment caused by COVID-19 was noted. Cytoflavin therapy at a dosage of 2 tablets 2 times a day for 25 days can be recommended as part of complex therapy for patients with DE and a COVID-19.
