The clinical modalities of presentation of pediatric SARS-CoV-2, severity of acute covid illness & multi system management continues to evolve over time. This case-based presentation will cover clinical covid management experience in the pediatric population during the 1st & 2nd wave in Hyderabad, India.
In April 2020, an emerging entity with toxic shock syndrome and incomplete Kawasaki disease was reported in paediatric cases in UK. This emerging syndrome was called pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome (PMIS) .and was later renamed by CDC to “multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children” (MIS-C). The clinical presentation and severity of MIS-C positive children managed in 2020 were remarkably different to the current MIS-C inpatients in 2021.
