Hi, folks. I have read something about kawasaki disease and I know some of these features. Is it necessary for all the features to be present so we can establish the diagnosis of this disease? Is there a typical form of this disorder? I am not a medical expert, so I would like to find out something more.

Hi, there. You are right. Kawasaki syndrome consists of several features. Those would be: fever, rash, changes in extremities, red eyes, neck lymphadenitis and redness of the mouth, lips and throat. However, atypical form may also appear. Usually, infants younger than 6 months have atypical form. It is very difficult in that age to recognize Kawasaki. Clinicians must be well trained. And Kawasaki can leave some consequences to the heart. I hope this helps.
