Abstract

Kawasaki Disease (KD) is a systemic vasculitis of small and medium arteries, preferably affecting coronary arteries. It is one of the most frequent causes of acquired heart disease in children. Despite being comprehensively studied, its etiopathogenesis is not totally explained. The surgical procedures usually become necessary during the late follow-up and may be coronary artery bypass grafting, cardiac defibrillator implantation with or without cardiac resynchronization therapy, or cardiac transplantation.
