Pediatric neurological manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the United Kingdom

Takeaway

  • There are differences in neurological features and disorders in those presenting with pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2 (PIMS-TS) versus those without; PIMS-TS patients had multiple neurological features that may require a different treatment approach.

Why this matters

    The prevalence of neurological complications among children and adolescents infected with SARS-CoV-2 is not well known; this study provides evidence that can guide clinicians in the management of pediatric patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
