Abstract
Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile vasculitis affecting primarily infants and young children. In addition to the cardiovascular involvement, it may cause inflammatory changes in various organs and body systems : digestive, respiratory, urinary, nervous and musculoskeletal. A case is reported of atypical Kawasaki disease associated with acute renal failure and necrotizing myositis in the right gastrocnemius in a 10-year-old boy. In older children, uncommon age of onset and additional features less commonly associated with Kawasaki disease may contribute to a delayed diagnosis.
Key Words: Kawasaki disease, Acute renal failure, Myositis
