Abstract

This case report describes the clinical history of a COVID-19 patient with a non-immediate diagnosis of severe dysphagia that required a gastrostomy positioning. A vocal folds paresis was observed for the first time in the course of a Sars-CoV-2 infection. Thanks to intensive rehabilitation treatment, the outcome was favourable.
