Children can become ill with COVID-19, and sometimes they develop a rare but serious reaction called multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C). When this reaction happens, different body parts become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, intestinal tract and brain. More than 600 cases of MIS-C have been reported in the U.S. as of Aug. 20, most in minority populations.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Emily Levy, a pediatric critical care and infectious diseases expert, gives an overview of MIS-C, including its similarities with Kawasaki disease.

To practice safe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, this interview was conducted using video conferencing. The sound and video quality are representative of the technology used.

Connect with others talking about the pandemic and supporting one another in the COVID-19 and About Kids & Teens support groups.
