The rare syndrome of corona children: Since the corona virus emerged into our world, it has been possible to see how the elderly population becomes the main victim of the virus, while young people have coped better with the disease. Recently, however, more and more cases of children have been discovered who, while recovering from corona, have been found with a rare cardiac syndrome that goes by the name “pimps.”

The syndrome is caused by an increased response of the immune system to infection with the virus, and its first symptoms will usually be a rash, high fever and red eyes. More than 1,000 cases were found among children infected with Corona and then the syndrome was discovered in them, when in Israel 30 children were diagnosed with this syndrome – as of this stage.
“This syndrome is very similar to Kawasaki disease, also an inflammatory childhood disease, and it affects the arteries of the heart and causes them to dilate,” explained Prof. Yehuda Adler, president of the European Union of Membrane and Myocardial Diseases. “I must say first of all that parents can relax, because it is a very rare syndrome. In Israel it has so far been detected in only 30 children and most of them have been cured and returned home, so we can say we know how to treat the disease.”
It seems that there is still much hidden over the visible when it comes to what we know about the corona virus. Three children are currently hospitalized in the intensive care unit of Kaplan Hospital with the syndrome in question: a 10-year-old girl is hospitalized in critical condition, and two other children aged 9 and 16 whose condition is defined as moderate but stable.
