The PATS and ERS paediatric webinar series continues, with a Long COVID in children webinar on 13 September 2022. 

Long COVID has been described as persistence of symptoms after infection with SARS-CoV2. This condition whilst first described in adult populations has been increasingly described in the literature as being important in children and adolescents. Over 200 manifestations of this have been described in the literature, and there seems to be a higher prevalence in the adolescent years compared to younger children.

  • The practical diagnosis of Long covid syndrome
  • Multisystemic impact of long covid in children and adolescents.
  • Long term outcomes of long covid in children across various populations of children and adolescents
