Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection
usually causes no or mild coryzal symptoms in the paediatric population.
In this case report, 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.
