disease (KD) is an acute, self-limited, inflammatory disease affecting
medium-sized arteries and particularly the coronary arteries in about
25% of untreated cases. KD is a clinical diagnosis based on the
presence of ≥5 days of fever and the presence of ≥4 of the 5 principal
clinical criteria. We described, for the first time to our knowledge, a
case of a very early development (on day 1) of typical KD with
transient coronary involvement, diagnosed on day 2 of disease and
treated with aspirin and steroids on day 3, with complete resolution of
clinical signs and coronary involvement.
