Pediatric inflammatory multi-system syndrome (PIMS-TS)


 New childhood disease now registered in SA (Nw 24)

Pediatric inflammatory multi-system syndrome (PIMS-TS), a new childhood disease that causes severe fever, inflammation and heart complications, is now one of the reported medical conditions (NMCs) in South Africa.
According to the National Institute for Portable Diseases (Nios) PIMS-TS is a rare disease diagnosed in children. There are reports worldwide what
indicating that it is related to Covid-19 - more recently also in South Africa.
NMCs are diseases of public interest because they contain significant health risks that could lead to outbreaks or epidemics locally and internationally.
Nios says he doesn't know yet what causes PIMS-TS, but that children who invented the disease were exposed to Covid-19 or were in contact with someone who had the virus.
“PIMS-TS can be serious, even lethal, but most children with whom it was diagnosed have improved medical care,” Nios said in a statement.
Netwerk24 previously reported that the disease's symptoms are similar to that of Kawasaki's syndrome in children under five years old.
According to the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Kawasaki's syndrome is a feverish disease, the symptoms include a skin rash, swollen hands, feet and lymph glands in the neck, red eyes and irritation and inflammation in the throat and mouth and of the lips included.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Nios expects South Africa to report more PIMS-TS cases in the next few months.
Early detection is crucial, the statement says.
“The health care worker responsible for the patient must immediately notify the authorities of a probable or confirmed case through the medical conditions notification system (NMCSS).
“A group of pediatricians and other experts were also called to collect and collect data on PIMS-TS cases reported through the system.”
“The data will shed light on the number of cases in the country so that decisions can be made on clinical and epidemiological management of them.” We encourage all clinics to register these cases with the NMCSS. "
