Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) occurs in children as well as adults and it is mainly associated with symptoms of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections. The patient was a 13-year-old child who had no symptoms of a respiratory infection and complained of abdominal pain and vomiting. A COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test was requested, which was positive. Based on laboratory test results indicating high serum amylase and lipase levels and imaging findings, acute pancreatitis was diagnosed, and after supportive treatment, the patient was discharged in good general condition. During the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, children who refer to medical centers with gastrointestinal symptoms and pancreatitis should be checked for COVID-19.
