Abstract

As we know, the spread of COVID-19 throughout 2020 has had many different manifestations in all different age groups. Our focus is the hyperinflammatory multisystemic effect it has had on the pediatric age group.
Background: Our patient, was a male child aged 9 years, presented with clinical symptoms of multisystemic inflammatory syndrome in children; a rare form of COVID-19 seen in the pediatric age group.
Case: Our patient presented with a fever and GI complaints. He subsequently developed other systemic symptoms such as a rash, along with mild breathing difficulties. His lab reports, of a positive IgG and IgM of SARS-Cov-2 antibodies and elevated inflammatory markers, were suggestive of a classic case of MIS-C. This was treated with initial intravenous steroids, followed by oral steroids.

Keywords: Mis-c, Covid-19.
