To the Editor: Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute autoimmune systemic vasculitis primarily affecting medium to small size arteries. It predominantly affects skin, mucus membrane, lymph nodes and coronary artery [1, 2]. Recurrence of KD is rare, occurring 2–4% cases in Japan [3]. Reports from India are scarce too [4, 5]. Authors present a case of recurrent KD in a previously untreated child with KD. An 8-y-old boy was admitted on day 5 with a high grade continuous fever and generalized non… Expand

Kawasaki disease recurrence in the COVID-19 era: a systematic review of the literature
It is believed that in this case SARS Cov2 acted as a trigger capable to determine, in a genetically susceptible individual, a second recurrence of the disease, and it is affirm the importance for Kawasaki disease to be tested for Sars Cov2 infection. Expand


Kawasaki disease - an Indian perspective.
Kawasaki disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all febrile illnesses in young children where the fever persists for more than 5-7 days and Prompt recognition of the disease and early initiation of treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) results in significant reduction in the occurrence of CAA.

Role of microliths in the aetiology of chronic submandibular sialadenitis: a clinicopathological investigation of 154 cases
The present investigation of 154 cases in which many clinical and histological features were analysed led to confusion about the aetiology and pathogenesis of chronic submandibular sialadenitis. Expand
Identification of a skeleton using DNA from teeth and a PAP smear.
Cytological smears stained with Papanicolaou (PAP) stain obtained from the putative decedent's medical records were used as a reference DNA sample and resulted in the conclusion that the DNA originated from the same source. Expand
Recovery of DNA from human teeth by cryogenic grinding.
This technical report describes an alternative method to recover DNA from whole extracted human molar teeth that is simple and relatively rapid, and isolation of the samples during pulverization minimizes the risk of contamination. Expand
An improved method to recover saliva from human skin: the double swab technique.
The double swab technique showed the highest percentage recovery of saliva from human skin among the three methods studied, and is suggested as an improvement over the classical single wet cotton Swab technique. Expand
