Abstract

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a new entity affecting a small percentage of children during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. This hyperinflammatory syndrome usually presents with multiorgan dysfunction, predominantly affecting cardiovascular, mucocutaneous, and gastrointestinal systems. However, few children have mild neurological symptoms at admission. Till now, severe neurological manifestations as a part of this spectrum have hardly been reported. This case report describes an adolescent girl with severe MIS-C who presented with multiorgan failure and suffered dual neurological insult, involving both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
