Children Signs and Symptoms of MIS-C

On May 14, 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health alert regarding children with signs and symptoms of a severe multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) potentially associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection. Patients have presented with persistent fever and a constellation of symptoms including hypotension, multiorgan involvement and elevated inflammatory markers. As this is an unusual illness and is associated with a reportable condition, hospitals and health care providers should immediately report cases meeting the MIS-C case definition to their respective local health departments. Local health departments should report cases to CDPH.
