Since its declaration as a pandemic disease on March 2020, a multitude of cases related to the infection by the COVID-19 were documented around the world. Initially infecting the respiratory system, SARS-COV-2 engendered different lesions of the whole organs with different explaining theories. Central nervous system (CNS) was one of the main affected systems of which the frequency of manifestations leaded to the apparition of the term neuro-COVID19. Lesions are of great variability including hemorrhagic, ischemic and inflammatory ones with different suggested mechanisms. We report 2 cases of 2 women who developed a clinical symptomatology of stroke 3and 8 weeks following a documented respiratory infection with COVID-19. We discuss through these cases, the possible mechanisms, the enigmas still surrounding this infectious disease as we emphasize the importance of imaging in setting the diagnosis.
