In view of the appearance of several sequelae due to infection by COVID-19 and the need to seek knowledge about this new disease, this review aimed to identify the main clinical sequelae in patients affected by COVID-19. The literature search was performed in the PubMed, SCOPUS, Web of Science and Science Direct databases and were included in a total of 16 studies. The main sequelae found were cardiac, neurological and pulmonary, other sequelae were also found such as kidney injury, gastrointestinal symptoms, joint pain, fatigue, excessive sweating and hair loss, however, in smaller proportions. These data provide a health team, during specific treatments of COVID-19, to avoid these sequelae, enabling health professionals to develop new treatment strategies, as well as more assertiveness in the diagnosis and thereby optimize the survival of the patient.
