Autopsy Reveals Inflammatory Response to COVID-19 Vaccine in a Parkinson's Patient: Spike Protein Detected, Nucleocapsid Protein Absent

This case report presents the case of a 76-year-old male patient with Parkinson's disease who died three weeks after receiving his third COVID-19 vaccination. The autopsy revealed acute vasculitis, multifocal necrotizing encephalitis, and myocarditis. Notably, only the spike protein and not the nucleocapsid protein of SARS-CoV-2 was detected in the areas of inflammation, suggesting that the inflammation was caused by the vaccine rather than a viral infection.


The findings of this case report highlight the potential risks associated with COVID-19 vaccination in patients with underlying health conditions, such as Parkinson's disease. The absence of the nucleocapsid protein suggests that the observed inflammation was not caused by a viral infection, but rather a potential link between vaccination and the inflammatory response. Further research is needed to better understand the potential risks associated with COVID-19 vaccination in patients with underlying health conditions. Healthcare providers should carefully consider the risks and benefits of vaccination on an individual basis and provide informed consent to their patients.
