No published data are available regarding infliximab use in Kawasaki disease patients with recent live virus vaccination. We investigated 38 acute Kawasaki disease patients who received infliximab within 90 days of receiving measles-mumps-rubella, varicella-zoster virus, or Rotavirus vaccines. There were no adverse events or serious infections, which suggests that infliximab use in acute Kawasaki disease patients with recent live viral vaccinations is safe.
