Kawasaki disease, also known as Kawasaki syndrome, lymph node syndrome, and mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome, is an autoimmune disease in which the medium-sized blood vessels throughout the body become inflamed. It is largely seen in children less than five years of age. It affects many organ systems, mainly those including the blood vessels, skin, mucous membranes, and lymph nodes. Its rarest but most serious effect is on the heart, where it can cause fatal coronary artery aneurysms in untreated children. Without treatment, mortality may approach 1%, usually within six weeks of onset. With treatment, the mortality rate is 0.17% in the U.S.

Scope and importance:
Kawasaki disease is an illness that involves the skin, mouth, and lymph nodes, and most often affects kids under age 5. The cause is unknown, but if the symptoms are recognized early, kids with Kawasaki disease can fully recover within a few days. Untreated, it can lead to serious complications that can affect the Heart. Kawasaki disease is most common among children of Japanese and Korean descent, but can affect all ethnic groups. It is a condition that causes inflammation in the walls of medium-sized arteries throughout the body, including the coronary arteries coronary arteries , which supply blood to the heart muscle.
Signs of Kawasaki disease, such as a high fever and peeling skin, can be frightening. The good news is that Kawasaki disease is usually treatable, and most children recover from Kawasaki disease without serious problems. Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute febrile vasculitic syndrome of early childhood that, although it has a good prognosis with treatment, can lead to death from coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) in a very small percentage of patients. The disease affects the coronary arteries that supply oxygenated blood to the heart. If the disease affects the coronary arteries, it can lead to severe heart problems including myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), dysrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), and aneurysm (weakening and bulging of the artery wall).
Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego has received a $2.5 million challenge grant from the Gordon and Marilyn Macklin Foundation to support Kawasaki Disease (KD) research. KD is a disease of young children with 80% of the patients being under the age of 5 years. While the peak age of onset of KD in Japan is 6 to 11 months, it is somewhat higher in the United States (viz.18-24 months)(2,3,8). The condition is uncommon in infants below 3 months of age, but has been known to occur even in neonates (7). The male-to-female ratio is 1.5:1.0. Our data at Chandigarh are, however, somewhat different. We have found that almost 30% of our patients were above 5 years of age (8, 12, and 13).
Country wise analysis for occurrence of Kawasaki Disease:
England—8.39 per 100 000 children under 5 years 5
Australia—9.34 per 100 000 children under 5 years 6
Japan—239 per 100 000 children under 5 years7
Korea—134 per 100 000 children under 5 years
