With the entire COVID-19 craze going on, the newly described Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome has been making headlines as well.
One of the things I remember reading about COVID-19 is that some people experience extremely violent reactions to an infection, like Cytokine Release Syndrome, which I mentioned in the title. All sorts of reactions where the body just goes all “yippee-ki-yay MF” and just nukes everything to oblivion.
Reading a bit about what is known about PMIS, I almost feel as if this is that same reaction. But in children.
However, I am not an expert in this field, so I would like to know. What does the medical world say about PIMS?
