Abstract


Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many cases of SARS-CoV-2 co-infection with other respiratory pathogens have been reported. These situations may be a source of under-diagnosis leading to the spread of SARS-COV-2. We report the first case of triple infection involving SARS-CoV-2, Adenovirus and Respiratory Syncytial Virus in 4 months old infant. Initially admitted with symptoms of viral bronchiolitis. The aim is to highlight the importance of using multiplex PCR for the syndromic approach of respiratory infections in this pandemic period, especially in children, in order to limit spread of COVID-19 to others.
