Care Coordination in a SARS-CoV-2-infected Child With Newly Diagnosed Medulloblastoma and Fanconi Anemia

COVID-19, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is responsible for a global pandemic that can cause severe infections in children, especially those with comorbid conditions. Here, we report a case of a child with a newly diagnosed medulloblastoma, Fanconi Anemia, and SARS-CoV-2 infection. Through multidisciplinary care coordination and meticulous planning, we were able to safely initiate this patient’s oncology care and implement a long-term model to address the patient’s care. This approach could be replicated with any newly diagnosed pediatric patient that requires monitoring for signs of COVID-19 with concurrent oncology care.
