Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection
usually causes no or mild coryzal symptoms in the paediatric population.
In this letter, we describe a 21-month-old boy infected with SARS-CoV-2
who presented atypically with features compatible with croup. With the
current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, infection control
measures need to be appropriately heightened and early diagnostic
sampling for SARS-CoV-2 should be carried out even in symptomatology
that is atypical of COVID-19.
