What is Kawasaki Disease?

Kawasaki disease causes swelling, called inflammation, in the walls of small to medium-sized blood vessels that carry blood throughout the body. Kawasaki disease most often affects the heart arteries in children. Those arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart. It also causes swelling in glands, called lymph nodes, and mucous membranes inside the mouth, nose, eyes and throat. Symptoms include a fever greater than 102.2 degrees Fahrenheit (39 degrees Celsius) for five or more days, a rash on the main part of the body or in the genital area, an enlarged lymph node in the neck, very red eyes without a thick discharge, red, dry, cracked lips and a red, swollen tongue, swollen, red skin on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. Later the skin on fingers and toes peels.

Typical Symptoms of Kawasaki Disease

  • Fever

  • Bloodshot eyes

  • Swollen lymph nodes, usually small swellings at the neck, armpits, groin and behind the ears

  • Skin over the entire body is red

  • Redness and swelling of fingers/toes

  • Skin problem on the arm

  • Swelling around the front and sides of the neck

  • Redness around BCG / tuberculosis vaccination site

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Kawasaki Disease

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Do you have bloodshot (red) eyes?

  • Are your lymph nodes swollen and enlarged?

  • Is your whole body red?

  • Do you have skin problems on your arm/wrist?
