Things Parents Need to Know About Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children

Things Parents Need to Know About Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children”

U.K.'s National Health Service (NHS) issued an alert in late April about the coronavirus-linked inflammatory syndrome, BBC reported.

"While it's rare, unusual and there's no certainty at this point in time of its direct association with COVID-19, ECDC is advising enhanced surveillance with reporting of this syndrome". It said all eight patients in this sample study tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, through antibody testing.

Dr. Saporta-Keating said the goal of treatment for this inflammatory illness is to calm down the immune system, and now doctors are using methods for other rare diseases to do so.

He confirmed that health authorities were investigating seven possible cases of PMIS in Irish children. "This means that a child can not spread MIS-C to another child".

Of the 110 cases of MIS-C in New York City, Mayor de Blasio said children 4 or younger make up 35 percent, children 5 to 9 make up 25 percent, kids 10 to 14 make up 24 percent and ages 15 to 21 are 16 percent.

Throughout this pandemic, the majority of children diagnosed with COVID-19 have mild to no symptoms. Such targets are visible in 110 NY children and many children in other states.

Last week doctors in northern Italy reported a 30-fold increase in cases of the Kawasaki-like disease in one of the regions that was worst hit by Covid-19. Parents and other child care providers should also be on the alert and contact health providers as soon as symptoms occur, said Judy Walker, a doctor and medical director of the pediatric intensive care unit at Blank Children's hospital in Des Moines. Even if it's not multisystem inflammatory syndrome, "it could be strep throat or something else that needs treatment", she adds.

Today, Stanford Children's Health published information from infectious disease experts about a serious multi-system inflammatory condition that has appeared in children as a rare complication of COVID-19. "While children are more likely to get very sick if they have other chronic conditions, including obesity, it is important to note that children without chronic illness are also at risk".

The Iowa child's age, location or current condition remained unknown Sunday. Most doctors believe that MIS-C is actually a separate condition caused by an abnormal immune response to COVID-19.

ECDC has agreed with the EU/EAA Member States and the United Kingdom to include PIMS as a possible complication to be reported for EU-level COVID-19 surveillance.
