Several cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Adults (MIS-A) have been reported in adults since June 2020 after COVID-19 was first reported in December 2019. It was initially reported in children as MIS-C with Kawasaki-like disease, but a similar condition has been well recognized in adults. Although Mycoplasma co-infection has been reported with COVID-19, to our knowledge, concomitant Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection has not been reported together with MIS-A. We present a case of MIS-A with concomitant Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection. It is unclear if concomitant Mycoplasma infection resulted in increased severity of the patient’s illness or if it resulted in inciting the immune response in our patient who had recently recovered from COVID-19 infection. This case highlights the need to diagnose a patient with a typical presentation of MIS-A and any concomitant infection or illnesses
