We report a case of an 8-year-6-month-old girl who was diagnosed with COVID-19 infection more than 2 months ago. After recovery, she developed polyuria, polydipsia, polyphagia, and weight loss. Her blood glucose level was 17.5 mmol/l, and fasting C-peptide was significantly reduced. Blood ketones, urine ketones, serum anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies, and anti-insulinoma associated antigen-2 antibodies were positive, and she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus. After fluid replacement and insulin treatment, the ketosis was corrected, and blood glucose was stabilized. COVID-19 infection may act as an initiating factor for autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta cells, directly or indirectly impairing the function of synthesizing insulin, resulting in type 1 diabetes mellitus
