The clinical pictures of COVID-19 pediatric patients in dr. R. Soedarsono Regional General Hospital, Pasuruan, East Java, Indonesia

Abstract

Background: COVID–19 cases in children are not as prevalent as in adults and tend to be milder. However, clinical profiles in pediatric COVID–19 cases in Indonesia have not been extensively studied. This study aims to know clinical profiles of pediatric COVID–19 cases in dr. R. Soedarsono General Hospital Pasuruan City from April–July 2020.

Methods: This descriptive study used medical records of pediatric patients who were diagnosed with suspected, probable, confirmed, and close contact with COVID – 19. Total populations with complete data in medical records were included in the study.

Results: Of 78 respondents, 41 (53%) were male, 42 (54%) were hospitalized, 18 (23%) were 1 until under 12 months and 12 until under 18 years old consecutively, 32 (41%) had moderate symptoms, and 31 (39%) had close contact with positive cases at home. The most common symptoms were cough (59%) and fever (54%). Most cases showed normal laboratory and radiologic findings. There were eight children with comorbidities, and most patients showed satisfying outcomes.

Conclusions: Most pediatric patients with COVID–19 at dr. R. Soedarsono General Hospital from April to July 2020 showed moderate symptoms with good outcomes.
