Abstract

A 15-month-old male with fever, malaise, rash, cracked lips and influenza A in respiratory secretions was noted to have slight edema of his feet and a rising C-reactive protein. Echocardiography revealed dilated coronary arteries, which confirmed concomitant Kawasaki disease. During influenza season, heightened suspicion for Kawasaki disease is warranted, as symptoms shared between these illnesses can cause delayed diagnosis and treatment.
