The 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) or the severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is rapidly spreading causing a pandemic all over the world [1]. Mainly affecting the lungs, it can cause severe acute respiratory distress syndrome. It may also affect kidneys, heart, nervous system and other organs [2]. Researches have defined almost all forms of acute COVID19 infections. However, after Covid effects are yet to be discovered. Clinical series of Kawasaki-like multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS), occurring after viral clearance, have been described in children (MIS-C) [3] and less commonly among adults (MIS-A) [4].
