Features of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) overlap with other syndromes, making the diagnosis difficult for clinicians. We aimed to compare clinical differences between patients with and without clinical MIS-C diagnosis and develop a diagnostic prediction model to assist clinicians in identification of patients with MIS-C within the first 24 hours of hospital presentation.
