ABSTRACTThe data regarding the epidemiologic characteristics and clinical features of infected children wich SARS-CoV-2 are limited in Mexico. The aim of this paper is to report the spectrum of disease of fifteen children infected with SARS-CoV-2 that needed hospitalization at the Hospital Infantil del Estado de Sonora, assessed from march to september 2020. The most common clinical manifestations included fever (73.3%), distress respiratory (66.7%), arthralgia (46.7%) and cough (40%). Nine (60.0%) children were diagnoses with RT-PCR and the rest by specific IgM-IgG. The most common radiologic finding was ground-glass opacity. During the course of hospitalization, no patients required intensive care support and invasive mechanical ventilation. The symptom complex and the treatment are discussed.
