The primary objective of this article is to understand the various complications caused by the coronavirus in the pediatric population.
An electronic search was conducted using PubMed and incorporated forward and backward research methods on clinical trials, case reports, case series guidelines, and reports from the centre for disease control and prevention (CDC) and the keywords included Covid-19, Paediatrics, Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), Complications, Acute kidney injury, Heart failure. Secondary resources included one study from pre-print servers (www.preprints.org), last search 8 May 2021, with notion of non-peer review status. Data was collected and analysed to stay current with the most recent alerts and guidelines for the best care for children during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Evaluation and analysis of literature revealed Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) to be the most prevalent followed by neurological complications. Whereas the least prevalent were septic shock and ophthalmic complications.
Even though Covid-19 has been seen to be a less severe infection in the pediatric population, the severe complications of the virus have caused a great deal of stress to the pediatric patients’ parents and pediatricians worldwide and hence, emphasis should be given to the management of coronavirus complications in pediatrics.
