CARDIOVASCULAR DISORDERS IN CHILDREN WITH MULTISYSTEM INFLAMMATORY SYNDROME ASSOCIATED WITH SARS-CoV-2 INFECTION

Based on current literature data the article provides a comprehensive analysis of cardiovascular disorders in children with a new coronovirus infection SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) with multisystem inflammatory syndrome. At the moment the world literature has accumulated a sufficient number of publications on the clinical and diagnostic characteristics of the multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children associated with SARS-Cov-2 infection. It is noteworthy that among the various clinical signs, 67-80 % of children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome have heart damage, and pathological cardiac manifestations are more common in this particular pathology than in Kawasaki disease, with which multisystem inflammatory syndrome has similarities. The risk factors that predispose to the development of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children and the underlying immunopathology are still not fully understood. The important role of a pediatric cardiologist in the follow-up of children who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection, especially in the form of a multisystem inflammatory syndrome with signs of damage to the cardiovascular system, is emphasized. The presented information is of great importance for medical practitioners.
