Abstract


While the acute illness of COVID-19 was the initial focus of concern, there are increasing reports of patients with chronic symptoms, known as long-COVID. Dysautonomia may be a possible post-acute neurological complication explaining the persistent symptoms observed in long COVID. Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a form of dysautonomia characterized by sustained tachycardia and orthostatic intolerance, has been increasingly reported in patients after SARS-CoV-2 infection. In this context, this review aimed to report and discuss the available literature pertaining to post COVID-19 POTS.
