Resumen

Background: Pediatric Multisystemic Inflammatory Syndrome (SIMP) associated with SARS CoV2 seriously affects children. Objective: To describe the symptoms, treatment and evolution of SIMP in patients of a reference Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Findings: 18 children were identified with a mean age of 8.76 years, 50% male, all with a positive serological test. The most frequent manifestations were: fever (100%), respiratory distress (94%), abdominal pain (89%), elevated C-reactive protein (average 21.8), thrombocytopenia (50%), pathological chest X-ray (89%) and depressed myocardial contractility (61%). 72% required invasive mechanical ventilation (average 3 days) and catecholamines; 89% used corticosteroids plus immunoglobulins. The average stay in the PICU was 5.5 days. One patient died of intracerebral hemorrhage. Conclusions: SIMP in PICU is characterized by fever, respiratory distress, abdominal pain, elevated inflammatory markers, and myocardial depression. Requiring corticosteroids, immunoglobulin and ventilatory support; presenting intermediate stay and low mortality.
