Abstract

Although COVID-19 was first described as a respiratory disease, current data has shown that it is a disease with multisystemic involvement in-cluding respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, neurological, hema-tological and immune systems. COVID-19 associated liver injury may be due to various potential mechanisms. Direct viral cytotoxic effect, im-mun mediated injury, drugs, ischemic injury due to hypoxia-hypoperfu-sion are among these mechanisms. Here we present a five year-old male patient who had no known history of liver disease admitted to our clinic due to elevated transaminase during the course of COVID-19 infection.
