A case of incomplete and refractory Kawasaki disease: Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges

S Mehndiratta, K Rajeshwari, AP Dubey, R Kumar

The diagnosis of incomplete Kawasaki disease (KD) – i.e. cases that do not full all the diagnostic criteria – requires a high index of suspicion. We report a case of incomplete KD that was refractory to treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin and subsequently responded to treatment with intravenous methylprednisolone.
