We describe the case of a 9-year-old patient who presented with inability to walk due to lower extremity pain in the follow-up of infection by SARS-CoV-2. Since the manifestations and findings of the examination were compatible with myositis, a blood test was performed that evinced elevation of creatine phosphokinase. The patient had a favourable outcome with symptomatic treatment. In the context of this case, we conducted a literature review of paediatric cases of myositis associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection.
