Kawasaki disease is an acute vasculitis of infancy and early childhood characterized by high fever, rash, mucositis, lymphadenopathy and coronary artery damage. The failure to indentify a causative organism using convetional culture and serological techniques, and the lack of response to antibiotics indicate that the disorder is probably not due to any known bacterial or viral pathogens. During...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(12):1657-1666.   Published online December 15, 1992
Kawasaki disease has been known as an acute febrile mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome since 1967. But its definite pathophysiology still remains unclear. In order to study the immunologic basis for immunologic abnormalities in this disease, we studied the level of soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C-reactive protein (CRP) at the acute and convalescent phases of the disease, comparing...
