UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh’s podcast series “That’s Pediatrics” is back! Every other Tuesday, hosts Sameer Agnihotri, PhD, Amanda Poholek, PhD, Arvind Srinath, MD, and Allison Williams, MD, lead expert discussions with influential health care professionals about all things pediatric health and wellness – from the common cold to rare disease and complex care. 

In today’s episode of “That’s Pediatrics,” our hosts talk with Tyler Harris, MD, a pediatric cardiologist at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, about MIS-C, and specifically myocarditis – or inflammation of the heart – that can occur in children who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have received the vaccine. Our experts discuss how things will change as vaccination of children for COVID-19 continues to increase, the different ways that myocarditis is related to COVID-19, symptoms concerning for myocarditis that should prompt parents to seek attention for their child, risk factors that pre-dispose people to get myocarditis from COVID-19 or the vaccine, and much more.
