Abstract

Although children with Covid-19 generally present with mild symptoms or are often asymptomatic, there is increasing recognition of a delayed multi-organ inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) following SARS-CoV-2 infection. We report the case of MIS-C associated arrhythmic myocarditis which recovered after anti-inflammatory therapy and immunoglobulin infusion.
