Abstract

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.
