Abstract

© The Author 2016. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of The Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society. All rights reserved. Kawasaki disease (KD) shock syndrome (KDSS) is hypotension with KD. We compared children with KDSS and matched control children with KD. Children with KDSS more often were female, had a lower platelet count and sodium concentration, had a condition refractory to immunoglobulin, and had abnormal echocardiography results. KDSS is a unique subset of KD.
