Recurrent Kawasaki disease

Pediatr Cardiol. 1986;6(4):199-202. doi: 10.1007/BF02310998.


This case report describes a boy who had Kawasaki disease (KD) at age 12 months and had a recurrence one year later. The coronary arteries were normal following the initial episode; however, during the second episode he developed coronary aneurysms. Gallium-67 radionuclide imaging, echocardiography, and angiography were used to diagnose the coronary abnormalities.
