Clinical manifestations of COVID-19 in children are generally mild and many are asymptomatic. However, recent international reports have described clusters of children presenting with an unusual syndrome of high, persistent fever, severe inflammation and single- or multiorgan dysfunction, with a suspected association to COVID-19 pandemic. It is recommended that clinicians are aware of this rare syndrome and that suspected cases are treated in a multidisciplinary setting.
