Previous studies on the pneumonia outbreak caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) were mainly based on information from adult populations. Limited data are available for children with COVID-19, especially for infected infants.
We report a 55-day-old case with COVID-19 confirmed in China and describe the identification, diagnosis, clinical course, and treatment of the patient, including the disease progression from day 7 to day 11 of illness.
This case highlights that children with COVID-19 can also present with multiple organ damage and rapid disease changes.
Data about infants infected with novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are scarce. Herein, we report a 55-day-old case who presented with COVID-19 pneumonia. The exposure, symptoms, laboratory indicators, and hospitalization are described in detail.
