The current epidemiological context unveils an unprecedented situation as far as arterial hypertension in pediatric patients is concerned, as it has a different impact upon them, mainly because of their individual particularities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, between 01.03.2020-01.03.2021, hospital admissions of pediatric patients having different subjective symptoms associated with high blood pressure levels discovered in the emergency ward have showed variations of this parameter during hospitalization, which was also related to the safety measures imposed nation-wide.
