Perhaps when China reported its first cases of the novel coronavirus in December 2019, few would predict that it would overwhelm the majority of the global community. The first reports conveyed that the rate of infection and death from this virus among children is rare. However, evidence showed that there is no particular age range for the disease and children, infants and even neonates may be infected. Although COVID-19 primarily targets the host’s respiratory system, complications in other organs such as heart, kidney and liver have been observed as well. This mini-review attempts to consider the publications focused on the COVID-19 infection among children with emphasis on renal involvement and the treatment approach of this complication.
Keywords: COVID-19, Children, Kidney, Acute kidney injury, Coronavirus

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Initially, COVID-19 infection was supposed to rarely involve pediatrics, now it is evident that even newborns may be infected. Kidneys may be of important target organs of the virus due to direct invasion or inflammation.
