SARS CoV 2 infection generally causes mild disease in the pediatric age group. We present the case of an unusually severe multisystem infection in a four-month-old infant with COVID 19 who was later diagnosed to have Severe Combined Immunodeficiency and HLH. Pediatricians should be aware of the possibility of primary immunodeficiency in infants presenting with severe multisystem manifestations of COVID-19.
