Objectives: Several case series have been identified describing adult patients with a secondary Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS) after a recent COVID-19 infection, presenting with features similar to Kawasaki Disease (KD). This paper aims to describe the first case of Kawasaki-like presentation in an adult Filipino with COVID-19 infection. Method(s): A case of Kawasaki-like presentation in an adult Filipino with COVID-19 infection was reviewed in a tertiary hospital. Result(s): This is a case of a 38-year- old Filipino woman who presented with fever, malaise, dry cough, sore throat, diarrhea and rashes. On examination, she had classic features of KD: non-exudative conjunctivitis, cracked lips, edema of the hands and feet, palmar erythema, diffuse rash, and cervical lymphadenopathy. Laboratory results showed anemia, leukocytosis with neutrophilia, hyponatremia, hypokalemia, transaminitis, hypoalbuminemia, and elevated inflammatory markers. COVID-19 PCR test was negative but serologic studies showed positivity for IgM and IgG, suggesting a recent infection. Treatment included methylprednisolone pulse therapy, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and anticoagulation, which resulted in rapid clinical improvement. Conclusion(s): As the knowledge of COVID-19 and its associated clinical features continually evolves, it is imperative to be aware of the possibility of KD as a delayed post-viral multisystem inflammatory response in adults that may warrant prompt treatment.
