Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) occurs 3-6 weeks after COVID-19. Clinical symptoms of MIS-C include fever, rash, conjunctivitis, gastrointestinal or other organ symptoms, including cardiac dysfunction. The incidence of MIS-C is 2 / 100 000 children with SARS-CoV-2.It is crucial to know why MIS-C is not observed in all children after COVID-19. To date, several candidate genes associated with the development of MIS-C have been proposed as predisposing factors. The small number of proposed genes is probably also related to the relatively small size of the cohorts of children with MIS-C. A large number of studies related to genetic predisposition to this condition are not yet available. This review describes the studies that have been published up to date.
