Our case report is an example of the presentation, diagnosis, and management of MIS-A. As we dove into the literature and discovered other documented cases of MIS-A, we created Figure 1 to illustrate the similarities and differences when compared with Kawasaki-like multisystem inflammatory syndrome. Our research into previous case reports illustrates the wide range of presentations, degree of end-organ damage, and treatment modalities. This diagnosis needs to be considered in the presence of recent COVID infection with new onset end organ failure, as prompt diagnosis and treatment is crucial for better outcomes.
