Abstract

The diagnosis of Kawasaki disease is based on 6 clinical criteria, 5 of which must be fulfilled. The presence of uncommon symptoms in addition to the classic criteria can be as misleading as the lack of common ones. Here we report 2 infants with marked pulmonary symptoms in the course of Kawasaki disease who were initially diagnosed with pneumonia.
