Giacomet V, Manfredini VA, Meraviglia G, et al. Acute Inflammation And Elevated Cardiac Markers In A Two-Month-Old Infant With Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 Infection Presenting With Cardiac Symptoms Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2020;10.1097/INF.0000000000002750. doi:10.1097/INF.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection in children mainly shows a milder course. In complicated cases, it is unknown whether inflammation is predictive of disease severity, as in adults. Moreover, cardiac involvement is anecdotally described. We report the case of a 2-month-old infant with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection presenting with fever, tachycardia and elevated interleukin-6, who was diagnosed with myocarditis and treated with immunoglobulins.
