A new syndrome, renamed

May 20, 2020 pm31 4:00 pm

We are very concerned with the sudden emergence of a set of inflammatory symptoms in children infected with COVID-19.

Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome has recently been reported in youngsters – from infants through teenagers. It was first reported in New York City, where there are several deaths associated with it. It looks like another disease – Kawasaki.

The name of the syndrome was Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (PMIS). Unfortunately New York City is full of bureaucrats who like to pronounce acronyms – and after being met with snickers for saying “PMIS is rising rapidly” (try reading that out loud) they changed what they call it (notice the name of the pdf) to the hard-to-pronounce-like-a-sex-joke Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children or MIS-C.
