This is a case report of a 68-year-old female referred to the SARS-CoV-2 ward with one week of intermittent fever and three days of progressive loss of vision. Laboratory work-up revealed severe coagulopathy, thrombocytopenia and hyperleukocytosis. MRI showed multiple ischaemic cortical lesions. Acute treatment with all-trans retinoic acid and cytoreduction was started and coagulation parameters corrected. Patients referred to pandemic wards must undergo stringent examination and be referred for further evaluation irrespective of suspected severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 infection.
