To define the pathological features of Kawasaki disease (KD) in the healed stage (over 40 days of illness), 69 autopsied infants with clinically typical KD (25 in the healed stage and 38 in the acute stage) and atypical KD (four in the healed stage and two in the acute stage) were examined. 
Atypical relapsing course of Kawasaki disease with hemorrhagic serous effusions and hepatic dysfunction.
TLDR
An atypical case of KD with a relapsing course, hemorrhagic effusions and hepatic dysfunction, that required two repeated courses of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and methylprednisolone is reported.
Atypical relapsing course of Kawasaki disease with hemorrhagic serous effusions and hepatic dysfunction.
TLDR
An atypical case of KD with a relapsing course, hemorrhagic effusions and hepatic dysfunction, that required two repeated courses of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and methylprednisolone is reported.
Incidence and clinical features of incomplete Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Incomplete Kawasaki disease may be characterized by a less frequent association of rash, cervical lymphadenopathy and coronary involvement, as well as by the most frequently missing symptoms being cervical lymphenopathy and polymorphous exanthema.
Presentation of missed childhood Kawasaki disease in adults: Experience from a tertiary care center in north India
TLDR
Four adult cases of acute coronary events are reported, in which coronary angiography was suggestive of sequelae of KD, and the clinical spectrum of missed childhood KD is frequently being recognized during adulthood.
Kawasaki Disease: A Review of Pathologic Features of Stage IV Disease and Two Cases of Sudden Death among Asymptotic Young Adults
TLDR
A 10-year retrospective review of sudden deaths in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, identified two fatal cases of Stage IV KD involving young adults that were healthy and completely asymptomatic; they had no identifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease before the fatal event.
Patterns of Carotid Intima–Media Thickness Progression in Kawasaki Patients: A Crystal Ball for Long‐Term Vascular Health?
Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute vasculitis of unknown etiology that predominantly affects infants and young children. It manifests with fever, rash, enanthem, conjunctival injection, extremity
Kawasaki disease: basic and pathological findings
TLDR
Kawasaki disease most frequently affects infants and young children and primarily invades medium-sized muscular arteries, including the coronary arteries, and is characterized by inflammation consisting of marked accumulation of monocytes/macrophages.
Advances in Kawasaki disease
TLDR
The development of a diagnostic test, more specific therapy, and ultimate prevention of this potentially fatal illness of childhood are dependent upon continued advances in determining the etiopathogenesis of this fascinating disorder.
Incomplete Kawasaki Disease in an Infant with Cholangitis Post Kasai Surgery for Biliary Atresia.
TLDR
A 1 years old girl who had previously undergone a KP for BA, presented with cholangitis which was presumed to be caused by a previous enterobacter infection that she had 2 months ago, and displayed three of five characteristic features of KD in form of fever, strawberry tongue and cervical adenopathy.
Kawasaki disease presenting with hemorrhagic pleural effusion.
TLDR
A 5-year-old male with incomplete (atypical) KD who presented with fever and severe respiratory distress due to bilateral pleural effusions was described.

Kawasaki disease. Relationship with infantile periarteritis nodosa.
TLDR
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.
Clinicopathologic study of the conduction systems in 10 patients with Kawasaki's disease (mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome).
TLDR
PQ prolongation was a sensitive indicator of acute inflammation of the AV conduction system in the present study and showed a good correlation with pathology and electrocardiogram in seven of eight cases.
Pathology of the heart in Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
Kawasaki disease is one with a pathologic pattern previously unknown, acute and inflammatory, and the angiitis begins in the microvessels and fibrinoid necrosis of the media is rare.
A new infantile acute febrile mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome (MLNS) prevailing in Japan.
TLDR
Recently, rickettsia-like bodies were found by electron microscopy in biopsy specimens from the skin and lymph nodes of the patients, leading us to believe that this clinical picture is a new clinical entity.
Are infantile periarteritis nodosa with coronary artery involvement and fatal mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome the same? Comparison of 20 patients from North America with patients from Hawaii and Japan.
TLDR
Clinical and pathologic autopsy material from patients with infantile periarteritis nodosa with coronary artery involvement and patients with fatal mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome showed no definite clinical reason to distinguish IPN from MCLS; neither gross nor microscopic features of the vascular lesions nor their pattern of distribution appears to warrant separation of IPN.
Clinicopathologic study of abnormal Q waves in Kawasaki disease (mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome). An infantile cardiac disease with myocarditis and myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Normal Q waves in children with Kawasaki disease almost always reflect myocardial damage in over 30 percent of the wall thickness of the left ventricle, and the possibility of transmural and nontransmural areas of damage cannot be excluded in the absence of abnormal Q waves.
