MIS-C’s unique TCR repertoire

Multiple Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) is a severe complication that develops in children previously infected with SARS-CoV2, with similar features to Kawasaki disease (KD) and Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).  It is still unclear what immunologic correlates differentiate MIS-C from KD and TSS.  Here, Moreews et al. looked at the circulating T cell repertoire and phenotype of 36 MIS-C, 16 KD, 58 TSS, and 42 COVID-19 patients.  They found that 75% of MIS-C patients, and none from the other groups, expressed the Vβ21.3 T cell receptor β chain variable region in both CD4 and CD8 T cells.  These cells had an activated and vascular patrolling phenotype but were not specific to SARS-CoV2.  Together, this work shows unique T cell responses in MIS-C patients after convalescence.
