Abstract

Kawasaki disease, predominantly a disease of childhood, includes such symptoms as acute vasculitis, mucosal inflammation, rash, cervical adenopathy, and edema. Its most severe forms are associated with coronary artery aneurysms. We report a rare case of this disease in an asymptomatic adult and review its epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
