Article: Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children with COVID-19
Children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome have a unique immunological profile revealed by systems-level analyses.
A summary article of a recently published study in Cell. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) typically causes milder symptoms in children than in adults. But in rare cases, the virus can produce multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) in association with coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19). This severe condition usually manifests four to six weeks after infection, producing high fever, organ dysfunction, and strongly elevated markers of inflammation.
