We describe a typical case of COVID-19 interstitial lung damage, with a favorable evolution, which was followed by a typical Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). There was a strict chronological correlation from the COVID-19 infection and the start-up of the GBS. No other known etiologic factor for the GBS was identified.

KEY WORDS: COVID-19; Coronavirus; Guillain-Barré Syndrome; Interstitial lung diseases; Lung injury
