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.
