Abstract

Kawasaki Disease (KD) causes coronary artery lesions which can be prevented if KD is diagnosed and treated early. We present a 6-month-old child with persistent sinus tachycardia who evolved to develop KD. Persistent sinus tachycardia must not be disregarded as can be an early marker of Kawasaki Disease.

Keywords: Kawasaki Disease; Sinus Tachycardia; Coronary Artery Lesions
