Kawasaki disease is an acute vasculitis of unknown etiology that predominantly affects children <5 years of age. Structural damage to the coronary arteries after the acute, self-limited illness is detected by echocardiography in approximately 25% of untreated patients. The long-term effects of the acute coronary arteritis are unknown. To define the spectrum of clinical disease in young adults that can be attributed to Kawasaki disease in childhood, we performed a retrospective survey of cases… Expand
Kawasaki disease: a childhood disease with important consequences into adulthood.
TLDR
Kawasaki disease has become the most prevalent acquired cardiac disease in children in developed countries, and some of these patients may require revascularization procedures or, rarely, cardiac transplantation. Expand
Missed Kawasaki disease in childhood presenting as myocardial infarction in adults.
TLDR
The most probable cases of KD missed in childhood and presented as acute coronary syndrome in adulthood are reported and there are no established guidelines for the evaluation and treatment of adult patients who have had KD. Expand
Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Serial stress tests with myocardial imaging are mandatory in the management of patients with Kawasaki disease and significant coronary artery disease to determine the need for coronary angiography and transcatheter interventions or coronary bypass surgery. Expand
When children with Kawasaki disease grow up: Myocardial and vascular complications in adulthood.
TLDR
The current literature is reviewed that may be helpful to clinicians who care for adults who experienced KD in childhood and there are no established guidelines for the evaluation and treatment of adult patients who have had KD. Expand
Acute myocardial ischemia in adults secondary to missed Kawasaki disease in childhood.
TLDR
Adult cardiologists should be aware that coronary artery aneurysms in young adults may be because of missed KD in childhood, as 6.7% of adults aged ≤40 years who underwent angiography for evaluation of possible myocardial ischemia had lesions consistent with antecedent KD. Expand
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. Expand
Kawasaki Syndrome
TLDR
Kawasaki syndrome has replaced acute rheumatic fever as the most common cause of acquired heart disease in children in the United States and additional research to determine the cause is urgently needed. Expand
[Kawasaki disease].
TLDR
Kawasaki disease is a systemic acute vasculitis of unknown etiology that occurs more frequently in boys and eighty percent of the cases occur in children under five years of age. Expand
Cardiac involvement in Kawasaki disease in Pakistani children
TLDR
A higher incidence of coronary artery involvement was found in Pakistani children admitted with Kawasaki disease over a period of 14 years from January 1997 to December 2010, and high index of suspicion among the general pediatricians about the disease can possibly be helpful for early referral and treatment.

Adult coronary artery disease secondary to Kawasaki disease in childhood.
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to clarify the clinical course and diagnostic imaging findings of patients with residual lesions as sequelae of Kawasaki disease and clarify the long-term prognosis in these cases of residual cardiac lesions. Expand
Sudden death in a young adult: sequelae of childhood Kawasaki disease.
A case of sudden cardiac death in a young adult secondary to sequelae of childhood Kawasaki disease is presented. At autopsy, proximal coronary artery aneurysms typical of Kawasaki disease withExpand

TLDR
A 24-year-old man who presented with myocardial infarction as a result of coronary artery aneurysms caused by Kawasaki disease was described and the diagnosis was confirmed at post mortem. Expand
Adult coronary artery disease probably due to childhood Kawasaki disease
TLDR
Adult survivors of childhood Kawasaki disease (KD) who had coronary artery disease that could be ascribed to KD and should be included in the differential diagnosis of coronary arteries disease in young adults are surveyed. Expand
Coronary aneurysms in infants and young children with acute febrile mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome.
TLDR
In 1967, Kawasaki, in Japan, first described a new syndrome affecting infants and young children-an acute, febrile illness with mucocutaneous involvement associated with swelling of cervical lymph nodes, which has become evident that 1-2 percent of the patients die suddenly from acute heart failure. Expand
Adult coronary aneurysms related to Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
Surgical treatment of multiple coronary artery aneurysms, severe stenotic lesions and thrombotic involvement of the coronary arterial tree that could be ascribed to childhood KD in two adult patients with no risk factors for atherosclerotic heart disease is reported. Expand
Fate of coronary aneurysms in Kawasaki disease: serial coronary angiography and long-term follow-up study.
TLDR
Kawasaki disease should be considered an important cause of ischemic heart disease in children and a possible risk factor of premature coronary atherosclerosis. Expand
Coronary artery aneurysms presenting as sudden death 14 years after Kawasaki disease in infancy.
TLDR
The observations support the contention that a previous episode of Kawasaki disease should be entertained as a possible cause of proximal, discrete coronary artery aneurysms presenting in adolescence or adulthood. Expand
Sudden death in a young adult due to coronary artery aneurysm secondary to suspected Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
The autopsy examination revealed a solitary calcified aneurysm of the left common coronary artery with marked stenosis of the orifices of the anterior descending and circumflex branches of a healthy 17-year-old Chinese male. Expand
Coronary Artery Aneurysms and Congestive Heart Failure — Possible Long-Term Course of Kawasaki Disease in an Adult — A Case Report
TLDR
A thirty-nine-year-old male who came to the authors' clinic because of congestive heart failure was highly suspected to be a long-term survivor of Kawasaki disease because of the unique form and distribution of the coronary artery aneurysms. Expand
