Abstract

We report a six-month-old febrile infant presenting with stridor. Later on, he developed typical Kawasaki disease with giant aneurysm of the coronary artery with thrombosis that resolved with an aggressive anticoagulation therapy. The giant aneurysm still persisted a year later. Respiratory illness with stridor is an unusual presentation of Kawasaki disease.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
