Kawasaki`s Disease
My daughter, now two, was diagnosed with Kawasaki`s Disease when she was 3 months old. Her only sympton was fever. It was misdiagnosed repeatedly, and consequently the diagnosis came late. Her tiny heart suffered greatly. Her arteries swelled to ten times their size. After two doses of IVIG, she improved. We take aspirin every day, and have echos every six months. Other than that, no one follows her. No one can tell me long term what the effects will be. I fear for her long-term health. Parents and medical staff need to be better informed of this potentially deadly disease.
