Background. COVID-19 infection is common in the pediatric population, presenting a variety of respiratory manifestations and evolving with multiple complications. Objective of the study. Assessment of clinical signs in different age categories in children hospitalized with COVID-19 infection Material and Methods. The study included 64 children from the COVID-19 section, IMSP IMC, with a mean age of 2.04 ± 0.38 years (variations 1 day-17 years), divided into 5 age groups: 0-1 month, 1-12 months, 1 -3 years, 3-7 years,> 7 years. The methodology of the study expected to assess the significance of clinical manifestations in the COVID-19 infection episode. Results. The study found a higher frequency of the disease in infants– 32,81%. The nosological expression of the infection was dominated by pneumonia 93,75%:95%CI 84,76-98,27 and single cases(4 children)-upper respiratory infections. Severe evolution showed 17,19%:95%CI8,90-28,68, the moderate form being dominant-70,31%.An almost constant sign was the febrile syndrome,which in 31 cases(48,44%) was> 38,00C. Each second child showed catarrhal respiratory signs,cough and cyanosis in 66% of children,chest circulation in 32% of cases,wheezing 9,38%. COVID-19 infection in hospitalized children resulted in respiratory complications in 81,25% cases,toxic complications 23,44%. Conclusion. COVID-19 infection in hospitalized children occurs mainly with pneumonia and only unique cases of nasopharyngitis, with the constant presence of catarrhal respiratory signs, dyspnea and fever, but also a susceptibility to develop severe forms and complications.
