Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is often mild in children, but many severe cases with Kawasaki disease-like symptoms have been reported in Europe and the United States, and termed as multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children(MIS-C). We experienced a 12-year-old boy met the diagnostic criteria for Kawasaki disease and MIS-C after COVID-19. His clinical feature reviewed neither shock nor respiratory failure. His laboratory findings on admission showed remarkable inflammatory reaction, lymphocytopenia, thrombocytopenia, and coagulation abnormality. The number of pediatric cases of COVID-19 is increasing in Japan, and attention should be paid to the development of Kawasaki disease and MIS-C in the future.
