A small study has reported most symptoms of rare paediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome (PIMS-TS) associated with SARS-CoV2 are resolved after six months.




  • PIMS-TS, also known as multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), is a rare condition associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection that was first defined in April 2020.


  • Causes: It is not known what triggers the condition, but it is thought to be a rare immune overreaction that occurs approximately four to six weeks after mild or asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection.


  • Symptoms of the condition include fever, rash, eye infection, and gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. diarrhea, stomach-ache, nausea). In some rare cases, the condition can lead to multi-organ failure.
