Patients with hemato-oncologic diseases are particularly vulnerable to severe infections. Adult patients with blood cancers infected with SARS-CoV-2 had poorer treatment outcomes and higher mortality than patients with COVID-19 without burden. However, in pediatric patients with hemato-oncologic diseases the course of COVID-19 is milder than in adults in the same group of patients. In this report, we describe the case of our patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia infected with SARS-CoV-2 and treated with remdesivir. We also review the existing literature of pediatric patients who have been diagnosed with both hemato-oncologic diseases and COVID-19.
