Abstract

Thromboembolic phenomena, especially pulmonary emboli, have been described in adult patients with COVID, but have been less evident in children. We describe a case of a teenager with bilateral pulmonary emboli leading to cardiovascular collapse in the setting of COVID and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C).
