This work presents a case series of four children diagnosed with severe cerebrovascular disease in association with recent severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, yet no patient from the group met typical diagnostic criteria for multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children. Our aim was to highlight the possible vascular involvement and coagulopathies associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection in the pediatric population. Further data are needed to better understand the pathophysiological basis of this condition in children and to ensure its optimal management.
