Small Bowel Pseudo-Obstruction in Kawasaki Disease

Pediatr Radiol. 1987;17(5):383-6. doi: 10.1007/BF02396613.


Between June 1977 and May 1986, 310 patients with Kawasaki disease were admitted to Shizuoka Children's Hospital. Among these patients, seven showed the symptoms of intestinal paralysis during the acute stage. We present three of these cases who showed typical intestinal pseudo-obstruction radiologically, and discuss the treatment of this type of intestinal involvement.
