Abstract

Background Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a virus which causes COVID-19. It binds to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors, expressed in key metabolic organs and tissues, including pancreatic beta cells, adipose tissue, the small intestine, and kidneys. This condition has been linked to a variety of additional symptoms, including acute encephalopathy, changes in consciousness, and even gastrointestinal bleeding. Case presentation In this study, we have reported a 13-year-old boy, 69 kg, with SARS-COV-2 infection. In this case, multiple systems, including the endocrine, renal, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems, were affected. Conclusions It is speculated that different manifestations of COVID-19 can be seen in clinical settings, and practitioners should be more cautious not to miss the chimeric characteristics of COVID-19 infection.
