Kawasaki disease (KD) is an illness that involves the skin, mouth, and lymph nodes, and typically affects children who are under the age of five. The cause of KD is unknown, but if the symptoms are recognized early, children with the disease can fully recover within a few days. A generalized vasculitis of unknown etiology, early recognition and treatment of KD can reduce the development of potentially life-threatening coronary artery abnormalities.
