Paediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome: Disease of children; pediatric comorbidity from COVID-19
Paediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome, or multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), is a rare systemic disorder involving persistent fever and extreme inflammation following exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. It can rapidly lead to medical emergencies such as insufficient blood flow around the body. Failure of one or more organs can occur. A warning sign is unexplained persistent fever with severe symptoms following exposure to COVID-19. Prompt referral to paediatric specialists is essential, and families need to seek urgent medical assistance. Most affected children will need intensive care.
