Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute systemic vasculitis that primarily affects the coronary artery, but does not commonly affect the carotid artery. Cerebral infarction (CI) with internal carotid artery stenosis (ICS) in patients with KD had never been reported. We report a patient with CI as a remote phase complication of KD.

We describe the case of a 15-month-old boy with Kawasaki disease who developed varicella 7 days after the beginning of the disease and diffuse plaque psoriasis after 43 days. Associations between Ka...
To identify the clinical characteristics, reasons for use and response to treatment with anakinra in a series of patients with Kawasaki Disease (KD).
Kawasaki disease is a necrotizing vasculitis featuring fever, erythema, conjunctivitis, and lymphadenopathy. Ocular manifestations in Kawasaki disease are commonly limited to anterior segment, posteri...

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
A syndrome characterized by new neuromuscular symptoms that occur at least 15 years after clinical stability has been attained in patients with a prior history of symptomatic poliomyelitis. Clinical features include new muscular weakness and atrophy of the limbs, bulbar innervated musculature, and muscles of respiration, combined with excessive fatigue, joint pain, and reduced stamina. The process is marked by slow progression and periods of stabilization. (From Ann NY Acad Sci 1995 May 25;753:68-80)
The amount time between exposure to an infectious agent and becoming symptomatic.
Microsurgical revascularization to improve intracranial circulation. It usually involves joining the extracranial circulation to the intracranial circulation but may include extracranial revascularization (e.g., subclavian-vertebral artery bypass, subclavian-external carotid artery bypass). It is performed by joining two arteries (direct anastomosis or use of graft) or by free autologous transplantation of highly vascularized tissue to the surface of the brain.
A centrally active muscarinic antagonist that has been used in the symptomatic treatment of PARKINSON DISEASE. Benztropine also inhibits the uptake of dopamine.
