Although the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the pediatric population appears to be less severe among children <18 years old, emerging evidence from Europe, North America, Asia, and Latin America indicates that COVID-19 infection may precipitate the hyperinflammatory state among children following infection. This paper reports a case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome with features of incomplete Kawasaki disease in an adolescent boy who also tested positive for COVID-19 antibody. This case highlights the potential COVID-19 complications in adolescents.
