We report an asymptomatic child with heterotaxy syndrome who had recurrent positive SARS-CoV-2 polymerase chain reaction testing. An aberrant lymphocyte population expressing CD19, CD16, and CD56 was identified; its phenotyping revealing atypical NK cells. This subset's role in protection from severe disease or in reinfection cannot be ascertained.
