WHAT TO EXPECT IF YOUR CHILD IS SUSPECTED TO HAVE MIS-C

Doctors may do certain tests (like blood tests, chest x-rays, or ultrasounds) to look for inflammation or signs of disease. Doctors may provide supportive care (medicine and/or fluids to make your child feel better) and medications to decrease inflammation.

Most children who become ill with MIS-C will need to be treated in the hospital, and often in the Intensive Care Unit. Health care providers will follow CDC guidelines to keep children and their caregivers safe if an in-person visit or hospitalization is needed.

Some hospitals have clinics dedicated to children with MIS-C. Children diagnosed with MIS-C will have many follow up appointments while they recover. It is important to keep all follow up appointments after being treated for MIS-C.
