A boy of four years old, Kaïs, is in intensive care. His father reports that he has hyperinflammatory syndrome, an overreaction after being infected with covid-19. “It rarely occurs in children,” says pediatrician Petra Schelstraete (UZ Gent). But he is not the first.
In the first wave, the link was made with Kawasaki disease, which suddenly seemed to occur more often. “The response is similar to Kawasaki disease, which is also an overreaction of the immune system,” Schelstraete explains. “But while Kawasaki usually occurs in children under the age of five, after covid-19 we also see an overreaction in older children. With covid-19 we see that children are also much sicker.”
The link between the immune system overreaction and a corona infection has also been proven in recent months. “Many of the children who showed these symptoms during the first wave have been shown to be linked to covid-19.”
“Long COVID” may be four different syndromes — here’s what they are.
