Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) has been reported to cause significant gastrointestinal symptoms. In this case series, we present four patients with MIS-C with documented acute appendicitis, which strengthens the association between SARS-CoV-2, MIS-C, and acute appendicitis.

Keywords: acute appendicitis; children; gastrointestinal symptoms; multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children (mis-c); sars-cov-2.
