A Case of Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome Temporally Associated with SARS-CoV-2

Introducion. COVID-19 in children is a relatively mild disease. Though a more serious condition characterized by systemic inflamma- tion does occur in children in a Kawasaki disease-like form named multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C). MIS-C in children is a less common pathology. Case Report. A clinical case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2 in- fection in a previously healthy preschool-age girl is presented. The disease had an incomplete Kawasaki disease-like form corre- sponding to this syndrome in children and adolescents as defined by WHO and CDC criteria. Conclusion. This clinical case draws the attention of general practitioners and pediatricians to the peculiarities of this type of syn- drome diagnosis and management.
