Among rising number of coronavirus disease 2019 cases in children, there has been a rapid rise in cases of pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome associated with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (PIMS-TS) with clinical features either simulating Kawasaki disease or toxic shock syndrome. We report three children who initially presented with fever, multisystem involvement, and features of hyperinflammation satisfying the World Health Organization criteria for PIMS-TS clinically and on laboratory investigations. All patients were treated with immune modulation by intravenous immunoglobulin and/or methylprednisolone and recovered to discharge.
