INCOMPLETE KAWASAKI DISEASE

ATYPICAL VS INCOMPLETE

  • The phrase “atypical Kawasaki disease” should be reserved for patients who have a problem, such as renal impairment, that generally is not seen in Kawasaki disease.
  • The term Incomplete is preferred when the diagnostic criteria are not met and KD is considered an option

ISSUES RE TO INCOMPLETE KD

  • Incomplete Kawasaki disease is more common in young infants than in older children
  • Making accurate diagnosis and timely treatment especially important in these young patients
  • They are at a substantial risk of developing coronary abnormalities
  • The laboratory findings of incomplete cases appear to be similar to those of classic cases
  • Therefore, although laboratory findings in Kawasaki disease are nondiagnostic
  • They may prove useful in heightening or reducing the suspicion of incomplete Kawasaki disease.
