Kawasaki disease is an acute multisystemic vasculitis affecting the coronary arteries. It is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. It is more common in boys than in girls with a ratio of 1.6. Diagnosis is clinical and treatment is with immunoglobulins associated with aspirin. We report a case in our department and our objective was to help better identify cases during paediatric consultations in our health facilities.
