Outcomes of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children temporally related to COVID-19: a longitudinal study
TLDR
The outcome of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) temporally related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in a resource-limited setting is favorable in children without preexisting comorbidities.
Clinical and laboratory profile of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children: A cross-sectional study in a tertiary care hospital, Mysuru
TLDR
Early recognition and prompt medical attention are necessary for a favorable outcome in MIS-C, however, there is scarcity of data regarding its long-term outcome.
Distinctive Phenotype of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children Associated with SARS-CoV-2 According to Patients’ Age: A Monocentric Experience
TLDR
MIS-C is a new emerging condition and represents a challenge to pediatricians due to the severity of presentation and further studies to better characterize the long-term outcome of MIS-C patients are mandatory.
Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Infants <12 months of Age, United States, May 2020-January 2021.
TLDR
Infants appear to have a milder course of MIS-C than older children with resolution of their illness after hospital discharge, and the full clinical picture across the pediatric age spectrum is evolving.
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) related to COVID-19 infection in the state of Qatar: Association with Kawasaki-like Illness
TLDR
The authors' young children who presented with MIS-C related to SARS-CoV-2 infection had significantly higher Kawasaki-disease picture compared to other reports.
A systematic review on Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) with COVID-19: Development of a scoring system for clinical diagnosis
TLDR
The children with COVID-19 having cardiac and/or gastrointestinal involvement are more likely to develop MIS-C and have higher mortality rates, and the scoring system developed herein will aid clinicians in patient diagnosis and timely management.
Severe Multi-inflammatory Syndrome in Children Temporally Related to COVID 19-Clinical Course, Laboratory Profile and Outcomes from a North Indian PICU.
TLDR
If disease progresses rapidly despite first line therapy (IvIg and steroids), use of Tocilizumab should be considered-as a rescue therapy under resource limitations in the absence of extracorporeal support.
Imaging findings of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children associated with COVID-19
TLDR
Typical imaging findings in children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome associated with COVID-19 showed pulmonary, cardiac, abdominal and brain imaging findings, reflecting the multi-modal nature of this disease.
Cardiac manifestations and diagnostic imaging in pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome temporally associated with COVID-19: a systematic review
TLDR
This review found various cardiac abnormalities that may develop during PIMS-TS patients and should be more vigilant and not underestimate the consequences in pediatric COVID-19 patients.

Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in U.S. Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children associated with SARS-CoV-2 led to serious and life-threatening illness in previously healthy children and adolescents.
Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children in New York State
TLDR
The emergence of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children in New York State coincided with widespread SARS-CoV-2 transmission; this hyperinflammatory syndrome with dermatologic, mucocutaneous, and gastrointestinal manifestations was associated with cardiac dysfunction.
Clinical Characteristics of 58 Children With a Pediatric Inflammatory Multisystem Syndrome Temporally Associated With SARS-CoV-2.
TLDR
There was a wide spectrum of presenting signs and symptoms and disease severity, ranging from fever and inflammation to myocardial injury, shock, and development of coronary artery aneurysms, and comparison with the characteristics of other pediatric inflammatory disorders.
Distinct clinical and immunological features of SARS-COV-2-induced multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children.
TLDR
MIS-C encompasses a broad phenotypic spectrum with clinical and laboratory features distinct from Kawasaki disease and macrophage activation syndrome and improvement was observed in all cases, including 6 cases that did not require immunomodulatory therapy.
Kawasaki-like multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children during the covid-19 pandemic in Paris, France: prospective observational study
TLDR
An unusually high proportion of the affected children and adolescents had gastrointestinal symptoms, Kawasaki disease shock syndrome, and were of African ancestry in this study, suggesting that the ongoing outbreak of Kawasaki-like multisystem inflammatory syndrome in the Paris area might be related to SARS-CoV-2.
COVID-19–Associated Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children — United States, March–July 2020
TLDR
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to expand in many jurisdictions, clinicians should be aware of the signs and symptoms of MIS-C and report suspected cases to their state or local health departments; analysis of reported cases can enhance understanding of MIS -C and improve characterization of the illness for early detection and treatment.
Paediatric Inflammatory Multisystem Syndrome: Temporally Associated with SARS-CoV-2 (PIMS-TS): Cardiac Features, Management and Short-Term Outcomes at a UK Tertiary Paediatric Hospital
TLDR
The entire cohort with PIMS-TS had cardiac involvement and this degree of involvement is significantly more than other published series and emphasizes the need for specialist cardiac review.
