Description:

A post-COVID complication affecting children and adolescents, Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), also called Paediatric Inflammatory Multisystem Syndrome (PIMS), was first identified in April last year by doctors at children’s hospitals in the US and the UK.

Since then it has been reported in several parts of the world. Several children here are presently being treated for the disease at the Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital for Children (LRH).

A post-COVID complication affecting children and adolescents, largely those between two to 15 years, MIS-C causes inflammation of the blood vessels affecting multiple organs including the liver, kidneys, heart and eyes.
