Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) affects more adults than children worldwide, and infected children have low mortality rates; however, COVID-19 can be complicated by an inflammatory Kawasaki-like syndrome called multisystem inflammatory syndrome associated with COVID-19 (MIS-C). We report a case of MIS-C from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in a 4-year-old Saudi girl who presented with acute febrile gastroenteritis and persistent fever. Her condition improved spontaneously during admission and she did not require pediatric intensive care unit admission.
