Paediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have published guidance on paediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome temporally associated with COVID-19.

Most children are asymptomatic or exhibit mild symptoms from COVID-19 infection. However, a small number have recently been identified who develop a significant systemic inflammatory response. This document for clinicians, which has been developed after expert review of the cases, includes a case definition and approach to clinical management.
