Severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV2), also known as COVID-19, has rapidly spread resulting in a worldwide pandemic. Although COVID-19 infections in children are generally mild and nonfatal, there is increasing recognition of its association with the multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), leading to serious illness and possible long-term complications. This report describes a 6-month-old Indian infant who presented with a 4-day history of fever with nonspecific signs of viral illness and erythematous rash. Although the initial echocardiogram was normal, subsequent scans showed progressive dilatation of bilateral coronary arteries. Despite the timely intervention, he developed left coronary artery thrombosis, leading to myocardial infarction. His SARS-CoV-2 antibody titers were strongly positive. Through this case, we discuss the management of MIS-C with coronary artery involvement. The long-term outcome of coronary artery aneurysm due to MIS-C remains unknown and close follow-up is important. Further research is pivotal for a better understanding of MIS-C.
