A 2 month old boy with Kawasaki disease developed the rare complication of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). He was followed up over 7 years by ultrasonography (2D‐ECHO) with and without Doppler flow evaluation, angiography and computed tomography. Calcification was noted 33 months after the onset of the disease but the aneurysm did not decrease in size. 
Thoracoabdominal and coronary arterial aneurysms in a young man with a history of Kawasaki disease.
Because of symptoms of imminent rupture, aneurysm resection and aortic reconstruction with a 26-mm zero porosity Dacron graft was performed and was successful.
A young adult who had undergone coronary artery bypass grafting and abdominal aortic replacement with prosthetic vessel later after incomplete Kawasaki disease.
Co-existing systemic arterial lesions should be sought in patients with multi-vessel coronary disease due to Kawasaki disease, although their prevalence is low.
Multiple coronary artery aneurysms combined with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
A patient who had multiple CAAs of all main coronary arteries and abdominal aortic aneurysm is presented, and the timing of surgical intervention and the treatment options are still controversial.
Surgical treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms in infancy and early childhood.
Successful surgical treatment of AAAs in infants and young children requires careful execution of a diverse group of surgical techniques based on the etiology, the child's size and growth potential, and the aneurysm's location and coexisting branch involvement.
Evaluating for systemic artery aneurysms using noncontrast magnetic resonance angiography in patients with Kawasaki disease: A report of two cases
Electrocardiogram-gated three-dimensional fast spin echo in the diastolic phase can help evaluate SAA in patients with KD and does not require a prolonged scanning time or contrast medium.
Prospective study of Kawasaki disease complications: review of 115 cases.
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.
Orbital myositis due to Kawasaki's disease
This patient is the first with Kawasaki's disease to demonstrate extraocular muscle palsy and orbital myositis.
Chapter 10 Large and Medium Vessel Vasculitis: Clinical Features and Treatment
This chapter focuses on large and medium-sized vessel diseases that may lead to renal disease because of regional or global renal ischemia and very rarely these entities may also involve glomerular capillaries.
Kawasaki disease and immunisation: Standardised case definition & guidelines for data collection, analysis.
The Brighton Collaboration Foundation, a network of scientists and clinicians working to improve the understanding of infectious disease in children, has raised awareness of the importance of vaccination in the context of youth health.
Imagerie de l’aorte abdominale pathologique ☆
La semiologie echographique, tomodensitometrique and par resonance magnetique y est detaillee car l’investigation des pathologies de l”aorte abdominale repose essentiellement sur ces examens.


Atypical Kawasaki disease with aortic aneurysm.
An unusual case of Kawasaki disease is reported, with a large abdominal aortic aneurysm developed, which subsequently was resected and an asymptomatic myocardial infarction secondary to bilateral coronary arterialAneurysms was documented.
Ultrasonographic evaluation of abdominal vessels in Kawasaki disease
Kawasaki disease (mucocutaneous lymphnode syndrome; MCLS) was first reported by Kawasaki in 1967, and is an acute febrile condition often affecting infants and toddlers with signs and symptoms of
CT screening for unrecognized coronary sequal of Kawasaki disease
A case report of two Kawasaki patients in whom detection of coronary calcification by Xray computed tomography was crucial in recognition of previously undocumented CAL, to stress the importance of CT in early detection of occlusive coronary changes.
Kawasaki disease. Relationship with infantile periarteritis nodosa.
It is believed that sudden and unexpected death during convalescence may be due to arterial lesions, especially those involving the coronary artery, that resemble those of periarteritis nodosa.
