COVID-19 in a case of Jarcho Levin syndrome

Uddalok Das, Narayan Pandit.

Abstract
Jarcho-Levin syndrome (JLS) also called spondylothoracic dysostosis is a rare congenital disorder. It is characterized by short stature with multiple abnormalities in the rib cage and vertebrae. The vertebrocoastal anomalies make the thoracic cage incapable of accommodating the growing lung. This in turn leads to thoracic insufficiency, severe cardio-respiratory complications, and frequent chest infections. We present the case of a 1-year-old baby girl who presented with symptoms of acute respiratory tract infection and was diagnosed with The novel Coronavirus Dis¬ease-2019 (COVID-19) by a positive rapid antigen test. During workup, she was also diagnosed to be a case of JLS with help of a skeletal survey. The baby died shortly after.

Key words: Jarcho–Levin syndrome, spondylothoracic dysostosis, COVID-19, ribs
