Abstract

We reviewed all cases of Panton-Valentine leukocidin-producing Staphylococcus aureus (PVL-SA) bacteremia in Danish children between 2016 and 2021. We found 2 fatal cases with preceding viral prodrome due to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Given the usual benign course of SARS-CoV-2 infection in children, awareness of possible superinfection with PVL-SA in a child with rapid deterioration is crucial to ensure adequate treatment, including antimicrobial drugs with antitoxin effect.
