Abstract


The symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID‑19 provoked by this virus are poorly described in children. Here we analyse a case of orchiepididymitis associated with COVID‑19 in a 14-year-old boy. We discuss the possibility of SARS-CoV-2-associated testicular inflammation. This report strengthens the necessity for more in-depth study of the clinical presentation of paediatric COVID‑19 and the
potential association with non-respiratory symptoms.
