MIS-C Like-Illness Has Now Been Identified in Adults By the CDC
CDC Says That MIS-A, Which is a New Covid-19 Syndrome, Is a Cause for Concern
The CDC has stated that more adults are suffering from an illness that is similar to the Covid 19-like syndrome in children. The condition is known as multisystem inflammation syndrome in adults, or MIS-A. It is similar to MIS-C, which stands for multisystem inflammation syndrome in children. Experts have stated that it is not linked to the coronavirus. Many people who have this condition do not show any Covid 19 symptoms.
Racial Disparities Exist
African Americans and Hispanics have disproportionately been affected by the Covid 19 pandemic. Experts have also found that MISC-A disproportionately affects minorities. There have been at least three deaths linked to MISC-A. Seventy percent of the children who are affected by MIS-C are black or Hispanic.Read More »
A 22-year-old black woman who lived in New York also developed MISC-A. She was admitted to the hospital after suffering a fever and chills. She stayed in the hospital for 19 days.
Hundreds of children around the world have developed MISC-A. The good news is that most of them are able to recover fully if they receive the proper treatment. Many of the children who develop MISC-A only had mild symptoms of Covid 19. Some of them did not have any symptoms at all.
The CDC studied 27 adults who were between the ages of 21 and 50. Many of them had severe inflammation throughout the their bodies. Interestingly, the subjects only had inflammation in their heart, kidneys and liver. They did not have any inflammation in their lungs. Organ damage and inflammation is common in patients who have severe Covid 19. However, these patients usually experience severe respiratory issues.
Patients who have MIS-A typically have minimal respiratory issues. Experts have used the respiratory issues to distinguish Covid 19 patients from MIS-A patients. Only eight out of 16 patients had respiratory problems prior to being diagnosed with MIS-A.
Nine of the 27 patients tested negative for the Covid 19 infection. However, they also tested positive for the antibodies, which shows that they had a Covid 19 infection in the past. All of the patients were minorities except for one.

The CDC has stated that patients who are showing signs of Covid 19 need to be checked for MIS-A. Some of the possible signs include irregular heartbeat, chest pain, rashes and gastrointestinal problems. X-rays can also show that the patient has lung inflammation.
Ten out of the 27 patients who had MIS-A required treatment at a hospital. Three of the patients had to be intubated. Three patients died. Additionally, two people had a stroke prior to being diagnosed with MIS-A.
Experts do not know exactly what causes MIS-A and MIS-C. They believe that more research needs to be done in order to find out the potential causes. However, because many of the people who have MIS-A or MIS-C test positive for the antibodies, experts believe that these conditions may be triggered by a post-infection process.
