    Background: Coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) induces myocardial injury MESHD, either direct myocarditis HP myocarditis MESHD or indirect injury due to systemic inflammatory response. Myocardial involvement MESHD has been proved to be one of the primary manifestations of COVID-19 infection MESHD, according to laboratory test, autopsy, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI). However, the middle-term outcome of cardiac involvement MESHD after the patients were discharged from the hospital is yet unknown. The present study aimed to evaluate mid-term cardiac sequelae in recovered COVID-19 patients by CMRIMethods: A total of 47 recovered COVID-19 patients were prospectively recruited and underwent CMRI examination in this study. The CMRI protocol consisted of black blood SERO fat-suppressed T2 weighted imaging (BB-T2WI), T2 star mapping, left ventricle cine imaging, pre- and post-contrast T1 mapping, and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE). Myocardium edema MESHD edema HP and LGE were assessed in recovered COVID-19 patients. The left ventricle ( LV MESHD) and right ventricle (RV) function and LV mass were assessed and compared with normal controls.Results: Finally, 44 recovered COVID-19 patients and 31 normal controls were included in this study. No edema HP edema MESHD was observed in any patient. LGE was found in 13 patients. All LGE lesions were located in the middle myocardium and/or sub-epicardium with a scattered distribution. Further analysis showed that LGE-positive patients had significantly decreased left ventricle peak global circumferential strain (LVpGCS), right ventricle peak global circumferential strain (RVpGCS), right ventricle peak global longitudinal strain (RVpGLS) as compared to non-LGE patients (p<0.05), while no difference was detected between the non-LGE patients and normal controls.Conclusion: Myocardium injury MESHD existed in about 30% of COVID-19 patients. These patients had peak right ventricle strain that decreased at the 3-month follow-up. Cardiac MRI can monitor the COVID-19-induced myocarditis HP myocarditis MESHD progression, and CMR strain analysis is a sensitive tool to evaluate the recovery of left ventricle circumferential contraction dysfunction MESHD and right ventricular dysfunction MESHD.

    Background: Although symptoms and signs of COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019) in children TRANS are milder than adults TRANS, there are reports of more severe cases which was defined as pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome MESHD ( PIMS MESHD). The purpose of this report is to describe possible association between COVID-19 and PIMS in children TRANS.  Methods: From 28 March to 24 June 2020, 10 febrile children TRANS were admitted with COVID-19 infection MESHD showing characteristics of PIMS in a tertiary hospital in the north of Iran. Demographic and clinical characteristics, laboratory and imaging findings and therapeutic modalities were recorded and analysed. Results: The mean age TRANS of patients was 5.37±3.9 years (13 months to 12 years). Six of them were boy. Kawasaki disease MESHD, myocarditis HP myocarditis MESHD, toxic shock syndrome MESHD shock HP syndrome, appendicitis MESHD, sepsis HP sepsis MESHD, urosepsis, prolonged febrile seizure HP seizure MESHD, acute hemorrhagic edema MESHD edema HP of infancy, and COVID-19-related pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD were their first impression. All of them had increased C-reactive protein level and most of them had an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate HP, lymphopenia HP lymphopenia MESHD, anemia HP, and hypoalbuminemia HP hypoalbuminemia MESHD. Some of them had thrombocytopenia HP thrombocytopenia MESHD. Six of them were serologically or polymerase chain reaction positive for COVID-19, and 4 of them were diagnosed as COVID-19 just by chest computed tomography scan. Most of the patients improved without a residual sequel, except one who died with multiorgan failure MESHD and another case discharged with a giant coronary aneurysm MESHD.Conclusion: Children TRANS with COVID-19 may present symptoms similar to Kawasaki disease MESHD and inflammatory syndromes. PIMS should be considered in children TRANS with fever HP fever MESHD and rash MESHD, seizure HP seizure MESHD, cough HP, tachypnea HP tachypnea MESHD, and gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting HP vomiting MESHD, diarrhea HP diarrhea MESHD, and abdominal pain HP abdominal pain MESHD.
