Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C)
March 6, 2021 - 8:02 pm

Since mid-May 2020, CDC has been tracking reports of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), a rare but serious condition associated with COVID-19. Many questions remain about why some children and adolescents develop MIS-C after a COVID-19 illness or contact with someone with COVID-19, while others do not.

Since reporting began in mid-May, 48 states, New York City, Puerto Rico, and Washington, DC, have reported at least one case of MIS-C to CDC. Because of the small number of cases in some states and to protect the privacy of patients and their families, CDC is not reporting individual states’ case counts.
