Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) and COVID-19
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. We do not yet know what causes MIS-C. However, we know that many children with MIS-C had the virus that causes COVID-19, or had been around someone with COVID-19. MIS-C can be serious, even deadly, but medical care is available.
Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of health problems people can experience four or more weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Even people who did not have COVID-19 symptoms at first can have post-COVID conditions, or “long COVID.” Long COVID can include different types of health problems for different lengths of time.
