Viral infection into lung, muscular, and endothelial cells results in inflammatory response, including edema, degeneration, and necrotic alterations. The involvement of the major arteries in adolescent with COVID-19 has been infrequently reported in the literature. The aim of the present study is to report thrombosis of the right iliac, femoral and tibial arteries and stenosis of left iliac artery in an adolescent with COVID-19 and to discuss the pathophysiological hypotheses.
