External validation of a risk score to predict intravenous immunoglobulin resistance in patients with kawasaki disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND we previously developed a new risk score to predict intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) resistance in Kawasaki disease. However, the IVIG dosage used in that study (1 g/kg/d for 2 consecutive days) differs from the single infusion of 2 g/kg recommended in the United States and elsewhere. Our aim was to assess the validity and applicability of our… (More)
