SARS CoV2 vaccine and aphasia
We would like to share ideas on “. Aphasia seven days after second dose of an mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.”1 Finsterer and Korn concluded that “Though the pathophysiology of ICB remains unexplained a causal relation between ICB and the …… monitored in patients undergoing SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.”1 A rheological change after COVID-19 vaccination is possible. There are many possible explanations. Of several possible mechanisms, an increased blood viscosity after vaccination might induced thromboheomostatic problem. In a recent report, an increasing blood viscosity, equal to 2.4 cp is observed in normal healthy population (baseline normal blood viscosity = 1.5 cp).2 If an increasing blood viscosity reached hyperviscosity level, 5 cp, a thrombohemostatic complication might occur. In the present case, the patient has an underlying thrombohemostatic disorder, myocardial infarction. According to the previous report, a person with myocardial infarction has elevated blood viscosity accounted for 0.19 cp comparing to background value.3 Hence, there is a decreased safety interval between background blood viscosity and hyperviscosity level in a COVID-19 recipient who has an underlying myocardial infarction. Therefore, there is a possible increased risk to develop any thrombohemostatic disorder. In the present report, it is interesting to evaluate the rheological change of the patient, which might be a pathogenesis of the aphasia disorder.
