In this case report, we describe a Kawasaki-like multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-A) in a 33-year old man that occurred 19 days after a SARS-CoV-2 infection. The main features at presentation were profound myocarditis, bilateral non-purulent conjunctivitis, mediastinal lymphadenopathy, and acute kidney failure and laboratory evidence of hyperinflammation. He received ACE-inhibition and beta-blockers for his heart failure and made a fairly rapid spontaneous recovery over the subsequent 8 days.
