We report the association of painful pustulo-vesicular skin rash with Kawasaki disease. The initial clinical presentation of our patient mimicked chickenpox infection, and the diagnosis was based on the characteristic clinicopathological features and the exclusion of other causes of pustulo-vesicular eruption.

TLDR
Recently, Rowley and coworkers reported that IgA plasma cell infiltration is observed at the involved vascular wall in KD patients, and such infiltrates are also seen in unaffected regions, such as the upper respiratory tract, pancreas and kidney, which are interesting findings when considering the coexistence of LAD and KD.
