Abstract

SARS-CoV-2 is a novel coronavirus which continues to spread and remains a threat to human life across the globe. The paediatric Population infected with the virus are usually asymptomatic or exhibit mild symptoms. MIS-C is a new dangerous childhood disease that occurs 4- 6 weeks after SARS-CoV-2 infection. Worldwide it was first reported in April 2020 in UK. In India 1st reported in KKCTH, Chennai. Most affected children have positive serology for SARS-CoV-2 with a negative PCR showing that MIS-C is related to immune dysregulation occurring after acute infection has passed. Children with MIS-C may manifest some combinations of fever, rash, conjunctivitis, GI symptoms, cardiac dysfunction. This can be related to systemic inflammatory response due to Covid 19, which can have clinical features similar to dengue fever. As dengue is endemic in our region, making diagnosis of MIS-C during dengue season is will be delayed because of sharing of clinical features in severe dengue cases. It can be fatal without early diagnosis and appropriate management in MIS-C.
