Background. Although much is still unknown about the full effects of COVID-19, literature from the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic (spring and summer 2020) supports a postviral immunologic reaction resulting in a multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). The purpose of this study was to report the rates of documented oral and oropharyngeal manifestations among these patients and to determine the association of these findings with other MIS-C symptoms.

Keywords. COVID-19; MIS-C; multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children; strawberry tongue; Kawasaki disease; pandemic.
