A-typical Kawasaki's Disease
I had never heard of this disease until I was reading my son`s coroners report. He was just twenty months old when he came down with what appeared to be an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. Some of his symptoms were rash, fever, arthralgia, swollen hands, loss of appetite. Our doctor did blood tests and ended up mis-diagnosing him with Serum Sickness. He returned to normal for about six weeks and then died suddenly from what we found out later to be heart damage that went undetected. There is a wealth of info on line about this disease and it is worth looking up. I just want parents to be aware of this disease and to question your doctor extensively if your child ever has symptoms of arthritis. It could be causing damage that you can`t see.
