Through this multi-center study, researchers are collecting data for analysis about pediatric patients with Kawasaki disease (KD) who have pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome (PMIS aka MIS-C) and/or confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection. KD is a rare childhood illness that affects the blood vessels and can harm the coronary arteries, which carry blood to the heart muscle. Through this study, researchers hope to learn more about cardiac complications, including those associated with KD, in pediatric patients with COVID-19.
This study will include: 1) patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection for whom there has been a request for echocardiography or pediatric cardiology consultation; 2) patients with a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of KD, or KD shock syndrome; 3) patients with confirmed or suspected PMIS assumed to be associated with COVID-19.
