This systematic review (see link below) just came out in JAMA open access, from authors at the CDC: Clinical characteristics of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in adults following COVID-19 infection. What I cannot determine from it is the split of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated in the group of 221 patients researched. It seems that SARS-Cov-2 results in hyper-inflammation in some (most?) patients. Also there is some discussion (not in this article but elsewhere) about the inflammatory response being amplified by vaccination against the virus and then subsequent exposure to the virus. I could not find vaccination as a characteristic in this article (not even in the table), though perhaps I missed it. Does anyone have any more insights about this?

I am not a doctor or a researcher, but a theory that makes sense to me involves the Monocytes and Mast Cells. In certain population protein components of the spike protein can trigger the above mentioned cell types into an allergic type reaction. These problem cells becomes inflammation generators and long lived in the blood stream.
Allergic reactions can attack random body systems depending on the particular self antigen expressed.
