A 10-year-old boy in Michigan had his hands and feet amputated four times after the onset of a rare severe coronavirus-related inflammation.
Dae’Shun Jamison was diagnosed with Childhood Multiple System Inflammation Syndrome (MIS-C) and was in Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in early February (spokesperson of Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital) His right leg was amputated and the boy entered the rehabilitation and rehabilitation center, which confirmed to Fox News. On Monday, the child was returned to the Helen De Vos Children’s Hospital, where both hands and left leg were amputated.
The child’s mother, Brittney Autman, introduced the story in detail on the relevant page of GoFundMe, and wrote on Tuesday: “Da Shun was very excited about his amputation and it broke my heart. Please keep praying.”

An expert explained that patients who are struggling with this rare and severe inflammatory disease may affect the loss of limbs due to an overreaction of inflammation, which affects the body’s blood clotting ability.
According to Dr. Rosemary Olivero, Head of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Helen De Vos Children’s Hospital, some MIS-C patients suffer from severe cardiac dysfunction that affects the body’s pumping of blood to other parts of the body. The way. She said that heart dysfunction, as well as blood clotting or bleeding problems, may worsen the blockage of blood flow throughout the body.
Autman said, “Due to insufficient blood flow and damaged hand tissue, her son needs amputation,” and wrote last month: “Dashun [sic] There is a blood clot in the right hand artery for more than 2 weeks, and his blood thinner is [sic] Doesn’t work…”

Oliver said: “Some patients with MIS-C do experience extreme changes in their clotting factors. Some of them may actually coagulate too much in certain parts of the body, and then coagulate very little in other parts of the body.” “Inappropriate. Blood coagulation is one of several very serious consequences of MIS-C. It does not occur in all patients, but it may occur in some patients, and due to the mechanism of blood flow, it does cause further organ damage.”
Olivero said that although medical professionals have become more proficient in MIS-C standardized treatment, the syndrome still faces incredible challenges due to the complexity of the disease.

When the child was told to amputate in January, Altman wrote: “He understands everything. He understands that when he [would] The legs won’t look the same when you wake up.Dashun’s tears broke completely [sic] I do it in many ways. “
The boy has been battling the serious course of the disease throughout the winter, and his mother detailed his treatment methods, including kidney dialysis, lung support and feeding tubes.
Oliver said that the amputation caused by MIS-C was a “very unique and unfortunate result.”
MIS-C usually appears several weeks after the previous COVID-19 infection, and may cause organ damage due to excessive inflammation.

Olivero explained: “Your body is excreting a lot of inflammatory chemicals that can really spread the immune system, which can cause great harm to human organs.”
Treatment is aimed at reducing the strong inflammatory response that involves the infection response. More specifically, treatment involves IVIg (intravenous immunoglobulin therapy), or an antibody library with particularly effective anti-inflammatory properties, and steroids used to stabilize the immune system. Children with persistent inflammation problems or children in need of intensive care may receive more targeted anti-inflammatory drugs or immunomodulators.
If a child is infected with COVID-19, the situation is usually better, with only mild or asymptomatic illness. This may make it difficult for parents to detect MIS-C cases early. However, the large number of COVID-19 spread in the community may increase the prevalence of MIS-C. Parents should monitor the child’s fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, skin, eyes, hands or feet, skin inflammation and other symptoms, rashes, lips or Red eyes, Olivero said. Some children have swollen hands or feet, while others have swollen lymph nodes.
Experts suggest that any parents related to MIS-C should immediately contact their doctor for evaluation.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of February 1, more than 2,000 MIS-C cases have been reported across the country, disproportionately affecting ethnic minorities.
