Simplifying Therapy for Kawasaki Disease

Diplomat combines clinical expertise with personalized care.

Kawasaki disease causes inflammation in the walls of the arteries. Sometimes, it will also cause inflammation in the lymph nodes, skin, and mucous membranes (such as the eyes, mouth, and nose).

 

Kawasaki disease can cause long-term damage to the blood vessels. If it goes untreated, Kawasaki disease can lead to serious issues with the heart, including clots and restricted blood flow. Fortunately, Kawasaki disease is very treatable. Most children who are treated early recover from Kawasaki disease without any major issues.

 

Kawasaki disease most often affects children younger than 5 years old. Boys, especially of Asian or Pacific Island descent, are more likely to contract Kawasaki disease than girls.
