Background: COVID-19 in children normally causes mild infectious illness, but serious repercussions can occur in combination with both acute infection and related phenomena in children, like the Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C). In rural hospitals, there is less information available on Cardiac abnormality in MIS-C. Objectives: To know the prevalence of cardiac dysfunction of MIS-C children having COVID-19. Methodology: The MIS-C patients in this prospective research will be diagnosed using WHO criteria. On admission, MIS-C patients with cardiac marker positive will have an anomaly in one or more of the following: electrocardiography, brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), serum troponin, and/or echocardiogram. Results: We will determine the prevalence of cardiac dysfunction in MIS-C when the study is completed. We will compare outcome factors such as hospital stay days, ICU admission, and death based on the therapy received. We all also study the correlation between the inflammatory marker and LV dysfunction. Conclusion: The study will most likely provide information on the prevalence of heart abnormality in MIS-C children. Also, the outcome of the MIS-C with cardiac dysfunction will be revealed.
