Special Issue Information
Post-COVID and Long COVID are entities that are not well defined in Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. Altogether, prevalence as well as presentation seem to differ from what is found in adults.
See https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35994282/ and https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36194229/
In recent months, numerous publications have dealt with this issue, however terminology still remains heterogenous and study results are controversial. Prospective large-scale studies and meta-analyses are still missing, thus leaving space for individual opinions and speculations.
A Special Issue of “Children” entitled
Post-COVID and Long COVID in children – what do we know so far?
should shed more light on this issue.
As guest editors, we invite you to submit your research work. Prospective controlled (large-scale) studies are preferred, but other contributions (e.g., case series) will be also considered according to their novelty.
