Abstract

Periungual desquamation is one of the clinical signs included in the Kawasaki disease (KD) case definition that manifests after the acute febrile phase of the illness. This clinical sign is sometimes used to diagnose cases that were initially missed. We conducted a retrospective review to determine the frequency with which periungual desquamation is associated with KD.
