MLF: Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children and SARS-CoV-2 serology

Session Immunity and vaccination

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children is a rare but serious complication of SARS-COV-2 infection in the pediatric population. The clinical case definition includes past history of SARS-COV-2 infection, fever, laboratory evidence of inflammation, and multisystem involvement. The process appears to be immune-mediated, but the precise pathogenic cascade is still under study. The talk will review what is currently known about MIS-C and future research questions and directions.
