17-Year-Old Develops Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome and Myocarditis After Pfizer Fake Vaccine, Report Shows
A peer-reviewed brief report published Oct. 7 in Acta Paedatrica describes a case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in a previously healthy 17-year-old male who developed fever, vomiting, myalgia and chest pain five days after his second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
A peer-reviewed brief report published Oct. 7 in Acta Paedatrica described the first known case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS) in a child (MIS-C) following administration of a COVID vaccine.
According to the report, a previously healthy 17-year-old male developed fever, vomiting, myalgia and chest pain five days after his second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. After two days, he was admitted to the hospital with high levels of inflammatory parameters and multisystem involvement of the gastrointestinal tract, skin, central nervous system, kidneys, liver, coagulation, lungs and heart.
The patient developed myocarditis — inflammation that results from the body’s immune reaction to initial heart damage — with a severely reduced ejection fraction of 20%. He was then placed in the ICU for six days with norepinephrine infusion, high-flow oxygen therapy, steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin and antibiotics. He was discharged after 10 days of hospitalization.
“To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of an adolescent who developed fever and multisystem inflammation following an mRNA SARS-CoV-2 vaccination,” the authors said. “He fulfilled the diagnostic definition for a level-one definitive case of MIS-C after COVID-19 vaccination.”
