Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) is a hyperinflammatory syndrome that causes presentations comparable to Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome. A suspected correlation has been made between children with a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection and the development of MIS-C. Pediatric patients are presenting with dermatologic, mucocutaneous, gastrointestinal, and cardiac manifestations and require, depending on severity, systemic glucocorticoids, vasopressors, and intravenous immune globulin. The serious and life-threatening potential of MIS-C makes it imperative for medical professionals to recognize the signs and symptoms of this syndrome and promptly implement the appropriate interventions.
