Abstract

Kawasaki disease is an acute illness of early childhood, especially less than 5 years of age, characterized by prolonged fever (>5 days), changes of lips and oral cavity, changes of peripheral extremities, polymorphous skin rash, bilateral conjunctival congestion and acute nonpurulent cervical lymphadenopathy. Usually, the recurrence of Kawasaki disease is not frequent. It is thought that the factors in recurrence of Kawasaki disease was sex, age and IV gammaglobulin. We have experienced the first attack of Kawasaki disease at 18 months-old female who had 5 recurrences during 4 years.
