Nonrespiratory conditions related to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections have been largely described. Ileocolic intussusception has been reported in association with SARS-CoV-2 infection in 10 children, raising the possibility of an etiopathologic role for the virus, but none of these cases documented tissue pathology that would have supported SARS-CoV-2 intestinal inflammation. We report 2 cases of intussusception in patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection who were treated at different pediatric tertiary centers in Europe and provide evidence of the presence of the virus in mesenteric and intestinal tissues of the patients.

ABSTRACT: COVID-19 infection in children is less understood than COVID-19 infection in adults, and although it is believed to cause mild or asymptomatic infections, several cases of severe or atypical presentations have been reported. Children presenting with gastrointestinal symptoms, even those without respiratory symptoms, should raise the suspicion for possible COVID-19 infection. This case report describes a 20-month-old girl with a clear history of COVID-19 exposure whose acute abdomen and lethargy were diagnosed as COVID-19 infection complicated by intussusception.

COVID-19 may cause intussusception in infants. We report on a case of severe ileo-colic intussusception in an infant with COVID-19 who required an ileo-colic resection. A literature review revealed 9 other cases with COVID-19 and intussusception. In this article, we will discuss the management and treatment of the first reported case of intussusception associated with COVID-19 in Italy.
