Mysterious Children’s Disease Linked to COVID-19 and Kawasaki Disease

Doctors have also warned against the misconception that children are not prone to infection with the novel coronavirus. It is similar to what physicians typically identify as Kawasaki disease. They are characterized by systemic inflammation and are carefully studied by experts. "There is some discussion of how closely linked this is to COVID, but there are some patients who have not tested positive for the virus, so it's really challenging to make that a direct link", said Dr. Saporta-Keating.

The syndrome, now known as pediatric inflammatory multi-system syndrome or PIMS has been reported in the death of three children in NY. The CDC describes KD as an acute febrile illness of unknown cause that primarily affects children aged 5 and younger.

As if parenting in a pandemic wasn't hard enough, news reports this week on pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome, now abbreviated as MIS-C, have been nothing short of overwhelming. "The findings confirm that this emerging disease was already widespread in March and that it is not universally benign among children".

He said doctors across Ireland had been asked to report any such cases going forward following a request from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

The boy was one of eight cases treated at Evelina London Children's Hospital over a 10-day period in April. She too tested positive for COVID-19, while simultaneously fighting off a Kawasaki-like infection.

While the number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients continues to decline in the state, doctors are asking parents to be aware of symptoms that could put children at risk. The patients were between one and 14 years old.

The symptoms of PIMS are similar to two rare conditions. Rash or bilateral non-purulent conjunctivitis or muco-cutaneous inflammation signs (oral, hands or feet), 2.

Dr. Hanna said the timing of this outbreak was "suspicious".

Reports of this new pediatric syndrome are also coming from the United Kingdom, the U.S., France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.

Three children have died in ny due to inflammatory complications linked to the coronavirus. "As long as I think we are on alert for it and we're keeping a close eye open for it, even if there are some cases, I would be pretty confident that that would be quite manageable".
