Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) Clinic

The MIS-C Clinic at Children's Hospital was created to address the rare inflammatory syndrome that happens in some children exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.

Our expert specialists in cardiology, rheumatology and infectious diseases continue following children experiencing MIS-C after their release from Children's Hospital. Follow-up clinic appointments take place on Thursday afternoons.
