    Introduction: Children usually present with minimal or no symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD. Antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 in children from low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) have not been well described. We describe the prevalence of anti SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and clinical phenotype of seropositive children admitted to a tertiary children's hospital in South India. Methods: To determine the seropositivity and describe the clinical characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD amongst hospitalised children, we performed a prospective clinical data collection and blood sampling of children admitted to Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS MESHD Trust Hospital, Chennai, India over 4 months of the COVID-19 pandemic MESHD. In seropositive children, we compared antibody titres between children with and without PIMS-TS. Results: Of 463 children, 91 (19.6%) were seropositive. The median (range) age of seropositive children was 5 years (1 month - 17 years). Clinical presentation was consistent with Paediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome MESHD temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD (PIMS-TS) in 48% (44/91) of seropositive children. The median (range) antibody titre was 54.8 (11.1-170.9) AU/ml among all seropositive children. The median antibody titre among the children with PIMS-TS (60.3 AU MESHD/mL) was significantly (p=0.01) higher when compared to the children without PIM-TS (54.8 AU MESHD/mL). Conclusion: We describe the antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 amongst hospitalised children in a LMIC tertiary children's hospital. Almost half of the seropositive children had PIMS-TS. Antibody levels may be helpful in the diagnosis and disease stratification of PIMS-TS.
