To investigate the regulation of Fc gamma receptor (Fc gamma R) expression on circulating phagocytes in Kawasaki disease (KD), we analysed the expressions of Fc gamma RI, II and III on neutrophils and monocytes in 20 patients with KD, 10 with a bacterial infection (BI), 10 with a viral infection (VI), and 10 healthy controls (HC) using flow cytometric analysis. The KD patients had a significantly higher level of Fc gamma RI expression on neutrophils, but not on monocytes, than the BI, VI and HC… CONTINUE READING
