Abstract.

Kawasaki disease (KD), also known as Kawasaki syndrome, lymph node syndrome and Mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome, is an autoimunne disease that manifests as a systemic necrotizing medium-sized vessel vasculitis and is largely seen in children under 5 years of age. It affects many organ systems, mainly those including the blood vessels, skin, mucous membranes and however,its most serious effect is on the heart where it can cause severe coronary artery aneurisms in untreated children. Some patients who don‘t fulfill the criteria have been diagnosed as having „incomplete” Kawasaki disease (IKD). The early diagnosis of IKD is a real chalange and kan help foradequat treatment and rapid recovery.
