Cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) in Texas

Texas Case Counts microscopic example of a coronavirus

The following data is based on confirmed cases of MIS-C that have been reported to DSHS. Data is updated every month. All data is preliminary and subject to change as additional information becomes available.

Visit CDC’s website for a summary of health department-reported cases of MIS-C in the United States.

See our Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) page for general information about the condition and case reporting in Texas.

Note: The increase in MIS-C cases from the last data update reflects a backlog of previously unreported cases from 2020 and 2021. MIS-C cases are typically reported through voluntary reporting, and delayed or incomplete reporting may be due to resource constraints at healthcare facilities and local health entities. DSHS carefully reviews all MIS-C data reported to the department to confirm each patient meets CDC case definition.
