Abstract

We describe a 12-year-old boy with uncontrolled bronchial asthma, bronchiolitis obliterans and restrictive and obstructive pulmonary disorders in spirometry who became infected with COVID-19. Contrary to the assumptions of other clinical findings, the boy was complaining only one day about body aches while showing no other symptoms. Neither cough, dyspnoea nor fever occurred. This case demonstrates that in particular paediatric patients with pre-existing pulmonary condition such as uncontrolled bronchial asthma and bronchiolitis obliterans can show an uncomplicated course of the COVID-19 disease.
