Paediatric inflammatory multisystem inflammatory syndrome temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection (PIMS-TS) is a new disease with overlapping features of Kawasaki disease (KD) and toxic shock syndrome. Unbiased single cell RNA sequencing analysis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from PIMS-TS and KD patients shows monocytes are the main source of pro-inflammatory cytokines and large changes in the frequency of classical, intermediate and non-classical monocytes occur in both diseases.
