BACKGROUND: 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.

RESULTS: This case highlights that children with COVID-19 can also present with multiple organ damage and rapid disease changes.

CONCLUSIONS: When managing such infant patients with COVID-19, frequent and careful clinical monitoring is essential.
