Forty-one children with a clinical diagnosis of Kawasaki syndrome had a pediatric ophthal-mologic examination performed at a mean time of 8.6 days after onset of fever. Twenty-seven of 41 patients (66%) had evidence of anterior uveitis by slit lamp examination. Bilateral involvement was noted in 25 of 27 patients (97%). Punctate keratitis was evident in 5 of 41 patients (12%). Three of these five had coexisting uveitis. The incidence of anterior uveitis in patients examined during the first… 
Anterior Uveitis Associated with Kawasaki Disease-and the Ophthalmologist's Role
TLDR
KD may progress with severe cardiac complications, eventually resulting in permanent sequale, therefore, early diagnosis and therapeutic intervention is important in KD patients, and a high index of suspicion is necessary in patients with anterior uveitis.
Bilateral simultaneous-onset nongranulomatous acute anterior uveitis: clinical presentation and etiology.
TLDR
Simultaneous-onset nongranulomatous bilateral acute anterior uveitis is a rare clinical entity that is more common in younger patients and is most frequently associated with recent infection and/or systemic antibiotic use.
A case of Kawasaki disease complicated with retinal vasculitis
TLDR
A case of KD complicated with retinal vasculitis that caused transient impairment of visual acuity is reported, suggesting that the early use of infliximab is to prevent the progression of visual impairment in the present patient.
Uveitis in Children
TLDR
The different incidence of the presumed or defined etiologies in the various ages is probably responsible for the better classification of uveitis in childhood (71% versus 55% in adult patients).
Retinal Vasculitis in Kawasaki Disease
TLDR
A 4-y-old boy with KD who developed diminution of vision in the subacute phase of illness and was found to have retinal vasculitis, which is distinctly uncommon in Kawasaki Disease.
Bilateral Simultaneous-Onset Nongranulomatous Acute Anterior Uveitis
TLDR
Simultaneous-onset nongranulomatous bilateral acute anterior uveitis is a rare clinical entity that is more common in younger patients and is most frequently associated with recent infection and/or systemicantibioticuse.
Incomplete presentations in a series of 37 children with Kawasaki disease: the role of the pediatric ophthalmologist.
TLDR
It is indicated that the eye findings in KD could play a role in earlier diagnosis and treatment, and Pediatric ophthalmologists and pediatricians should be more aware of their combined responsibilities for expedient recognition of KD.
Acute Anterior Uveitis as the Presenting Feature of Kawasaki Disease
TLDR
Both ophthalmologists and pediatricians should be aware of this clinical presentation as delayed diagnosis could be responsible for delay in treatment and consequently for adverse cardiovascular outcomes.
Kawasaki Disease with Optic Disc Swelling and Uveitis
TLDR
Kawasaki disease (KD) is the multisystem vasculitis which is a cause of secondary heart disease in children and could be diagnosed by having the following criteria: prolonged fever longer than 5 days and four of the five main clinical features.
Usefulness of anterior uveitis as an additional tool for diagnosing incomplete Kawasaki disease
TLDR
The presence of AU is helpful in the early diagnosis and treatment of IKD and can be used as an additional diagnostic tool.
