Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) has emerged as a new pediatric disease in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this session, advanced concepts including the proposed mechanism of MIS-C pathophysiology are presented. Case studies illustrate differences in laboratory and clinical findings of MIS-C compared with those of other pediatric inflammatory diseases. Therapeutic regimens for each are presented based on the current evidence.

  • Distinguish between clinical and laboratory findings of MIS-C and other inflammatory diseases such as Kawasaki disease.
  • Describe the management of MIS-C and other inflammatory disease such as Kawasaki disease.
