Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The pandemic caused by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) began, as the name suggests, in 2019 and has been ongoing since. The effect of COVID-19 on children is usually mild, but some are susceptible to a novel Kawasaki-like disease, also known as multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). Kawasaki disease (KD) is different than MIS-C in terms of age, severity, clinical presentation, susceptibility, immune response, cause, and therapy. Coronary artery involvement, the BCG vaccination relationship, mucosa/skin manifestations, and treatment strategies have shown great overlap between KD and MIS-C. This Special Issue focuses on articles outlining comparisons between KD and MIS-C.
