Although COVID 19 infections in children are generally mild and non-fatal, there is increasing recognition of a multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) associated with COVID-19, leading to severe illness and long-term sequelae. Even though there is some evidence that the MIS-C is a post-viral immunological reaction to COVID-19, understanding of the immune response induced by SARS-CoV-2 remains unclear.Various local and international guidelines are being widely practiced in the diagnosis and management of patients with MIS-C. A case report of a young child who was diagnosed and managed as MIS-C is discussed here. The diagnostic challenges with the available case definitions and currently accepted treatment options are elaborated herein.
