Background: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which resulted in a global pandemic, is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. We aimed to highlight the cardiovascular involvement in children after 6 months of COVID-19 recovery, Aim and Objectives: To highlight the cardiovascular involvement in children after 6 months of COVID-19 since this has the potential for morbidity and mortality in this age group, Patients and Methods: This observational cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted on 42 pediatrics aged-19 after 6 months at hospitals from January 2022 to February 2023. All patients were subjected to full history taking, clinical examination, laboratory investigations as N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), troponin I, creatinine kinase MB (CK-MB) and lipoprotein profile were assessed in each child and imaging examinations, such as transthoracic echocardiography and 12 -lead ECG, Results: Regarding the findings of imaging examination, the mean EF was 57.67±4.69 %, 2 (4.76%) patients had ST-wave change, 2 (4.76%) patients had prolonged PR interval, 5 (11.9%) patients had diastolic dysfunction and none of the studied patients had either abnormal systolic function or left ventricular dysfunction, Conclusions: Abnormalities in the cardiovascular system in children with Covid-19 are of various nature, from mild changes in the echocardiographic image, to severe changes in heart according to the severity of infection. Even though most of these changes are withdrawn after the implementation of appropriate treatment
