A rare syndrome specialists detected shortly after the pandemic began — seen in children who have recovered from COVID-19 — seems to be becoming more frequent and more severe in Montreal.

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) manifests in the form of a fever, mainly, but also red eyes, red or cracked lips, and red spots on the body. The symptoms resemble those of Kawasaki disease, said Dr. Marie-Paule Morin, a pediatric rheumatologist at Montreal’s Ste-Justine Hospital, and they appear about three to four weeks after a COVID-19 diagnosis.
