Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute vasculitis that can result in cardiovascular sequelae. One of the most serious consequences of KD is the development of arterial aneurysms that can lead to thrombosis and ischemia. Commonly, these lesions, occurring early in the course of KD, are found in the coronary arteries. However, this location is not exclusive. This report presents a case of KD with atypical findings of a late-appearing brachiocephalic artery aneurysm. The authors suggest that for… Expand
Kawasaki disease: characteristics, diagnosis, and unusual presentations
TLDR
Although 2D echocardiography continues to be the preferred imaging modality for cardiac assessment in patients with KD, it has its limitations. Expand
Giant coronary artery aneurysms in a Japanese octogenarian - The oldest case of Kawasaki Disease?
TLDR
This patient may represent the oldest case of KD, predating the earliest known case by more than 20 years, and sheds light on the historical epidemiology of KD and its clinical course, especially regarding late vascular sequelae. Expand
Giant coronary artery aneurysms associated with Kawasaki disease detected on whole-heart magnetic resonance coronary angiographic screening.
TLDR
There may be a substantial number of patients who have attained middle to old age with undiagnosed Kawasaki disease, which is one of the most important causes of coronary artery aneurysms in children and young adults. Expand
Surgical treatment of innominate artery and aortic aneurysm: a case report and review of the literature
TLDR
The case of 81-year-old Caucasian male presenting with atypical anterior chest pain secondary to a large innominate artery aneurysm who underwent successful open surgical repair at his institution is presented. Expand
Aneurisma del tronco braquiocefálico: revisión de la literatura y presentación de un caso
TLDR
A literature review is presented and the experience with one patient that underwent surgical treatment for an aneurysm of the innominate artery is described. Expand
Innominate artery aneurysm with hemoptysis and airway compression in a patient with bovine aortic arch.
We present the case of a 63-year-old man with a bovine aortic arch variation, who presented episodes of mild hemoptysis secondary to a 4.5-cm (diameter) aneurysm of the innominate artery thatExpand
Prospective study of Kawasaki disease complications: review of 115 cases.
TLDR
The earlier the diagnosis and therapeutic intervention with IV IgG administration are, the lower the occurrence of complications; the presence of thrombocytosis, anemia and elevated and extended inflammatory activity are risk factors for complication arising. Expand
Magnetic Resonance Angiography Detection of Vascular Aneurysms in Patients With Kawasaki Disease and Coronary Artery Aneurysms
TLDR
Full-body magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) imaging was utilized both in the acute phase and again prior to cardiac catheterization performed at 6 months from the acute illness, demonstrating resolution of the iliac artery lesions. Expand
Aneurysms in the arteries of the upper extremity in a Kenyan population.

TLDR
Aneurysms of the upper extremity arteries are not uncommon in the Kenyan population, and although most of them are traumatic, atherosclerosis constitutes a significant proportion. Expand
Comparison Study of Echocardiography and Dual‐Source CT in Diagnosis of Coronary Artery Aneurysm Due to Kawasaki Disease: Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
The conclusion of the comparison of coronary artery visualization indicated that DSCT provided more explicit distal coronary artery than 2DE, and a mural thrombus could be clearly delineated in the GAs by DSCT. Expand

Magnetic resonance imaging of coronary and systemic aneurysms in Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging using three-dimensional turbo-field-echo sequences with the respiratory navigator technique confirmed the presence of a giant aneurysm of the right coronary artery (RCA), which measured up to 10 mm in width and 15 mm in length. Expand
Systemic Arterial Expression of Matrix Metalloproteinases 2 and 9 in Acute Kawasaki Disease
TLDR
MMP-2 likely participates in remodeling of the arterial wall in acute KD, particularly in the processes of neointimal proliferation and angiogenesis, and MMP-9 may play a role in the development of coronaryAneurysms, but its expression is not confined to aneurysmal arteries. Expand
Osteoprotegerin serum levels in Kawasaki disease: an additional potential marker in predicting children with coronary artery involvement.
TLDR
High OPG levels might be the result of compensatory production during acute and subacute phases of Kawasaki disease, and might be an additional clinically useful marker to monitor and differentiate patients who develop, from those who do not develop, such coronary artery abnormalities. Expand
Decreased Levels of Cystatin C, an Inhibitor of the Elastolytic Enzyme Cysteine Protease, in Acute and Subacute Phases of Kawasaki Disease
TLDR
Children with Kawasaki disease prior to therapy and after therapy had significantly lower levels of cystatin C compared to adults and control children, and the low levels persisted 1–106 days after the therapy. Expand

TLDR
Measure of circulating MMP-9 may provide a biologically relevant marker of connective tissue metabolism in patients with AAAs and had limited utility in excluding the presence of an aortic aneurysm (negative predictive value, 52%). Expand
