Enhanced national surveillance of multisystem inflammatory syndrome, Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome in <16 year olds
Surveillance of multisystem inflammatory syndrome has now commenced through the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit (BPSU). The BPSU's aim is to understand the incidence, presenting features, laboratory features, management, clinical course and the outcome of this potentially new syndrome characterised by hyperinflammation which is temporally associated with COVID-19. A better understanding of the illness will help improve the way we look after such children and may lead to new treatment and prevention strategies in the future.
