Abstract

We describe the clinical and laboratory manifestations and outcomes of 25 pediatric solid organ transplant recipients who tested positive for severe acute respiratory coronavirus-2. Twenty-one (84%) developed a mild disease; 22 of 23 (96%) had a positive serologic response. Two patients (8%), both kidney transplant recipients with additional comorbidities, developed a severe disease. The findings emphasize the need for close monitoring of this population.
