Abstract

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS) post SARS-COV-2 infection has been described in children. Few case reports of MIS in adults are available, the majority described in young previously healthy persons. Here we report the case of MIS that meets the Center for Disease Control definition of MIS in adults in an elderly patient with known type 2 diabetes with a recent history of COVID-19. As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise, we believe that more and more cases of adult MIS will be reported. Thus, investigations aiming to characterize the full spectrum of clinical manifestations, to clarify the pathogenetic mechanisms leading to adult MIS as well as long term consequences are needed.
