Abstract

Although rare, children with active coronavirus disease 2019 are at risk of developing malignant arrhythmia. Herein, we present the first paediatric case of refractory ventricular tachycardia from acute fulminant myocarditis secondary to acute COVID-19 infection. This 5-year-old boy required venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support, but made a complete recovery without significant morbidity.
