The post-COVID neurological syndrome has been coined, which describes the functional and structural sequelae of coronavirus infection disease-19 (COVID-19) in the brain. Mild/severe manifestations of the post-COVID neurological syndrome have been identified in approximately 33.00% of COVID-19 survivors. The presence of neurological complications after COVID allowed neuropathologists to investigate in-depth the role of viral infection in neurons. The pathophysiology of the post-COVID neurological syndrome involved the development of a systematic response, including coagulopathy characterized by the formation of microthrombi. Coagulopathy, an old term for a new disease, describes the discrepancy between pro-coagulant and anticoagulant systems due to overexpression of pro-coagulant substances and or their receptors in addition to suppression of the anticoagulant molecules and or their receptors. Vascular endothelial cells and hepatocytes play a central role in the regulation of hemostasis that is disrupted during the acute phase response (APR) of coronavirus-19 (COVID-19). Currently, coagulopathy and inflammation are termed together since both form a complementary system, indicated by the elevation of inflammatory biomarkers (APR) and fibrinolysis biomarkers (D-dimer/fibrin). The later events of the post-COVID neurological syndrome are primarily induced by coagulopathy and direct viral tropism. Therefore, the paper introduces the hypothesis of coagulopathy induced post-COVID neurological syndrome.

Keywords: Homeostasis & hemostasis, COVID-19 & SARS-CoV2, coagulopathy, endothelial dysfunction, pathogenesis & pathophysiology, post-COVID syndrome, neurology.
