Reduced Self-Awareness Following a Combined Polar and Paramedian Bilateral Thalamic Infarction. A Possible Relationship With SARS-CoV-2 Risk of Contagion?

Massimo Bartoli, Sara Palermo, Mario Stanziano, Giuseppina E. Cipriani, Daniela Leotta, Maria C. Valentini, Martina Amanzio
2020 Frontiers in Psychology  
We suggest that reduced self-awareness related to executive dysfunction and behavioral changes may be due to combined polar and paramedian bilateral thalamic lesion.  ...  The patient developed a cognitive impairment, characterised by prevalent executive dysfunction associated with reduced self-awareness and mood changes, in terms of apathy and depression.  ...  The latter could represent only a suggested hypothesis, which needs to be verified through in-depth multidisciplinary investigations (neuropsychological, virological, and epidemiological).  ...
