Ocular Features of Kawasaki's Disease

Ocular Features of Kawasaki's Disease Abstract • Ocular signs are a principal presenting feature of Kawasaki's disease. It is important for the ophthalmologist to recognize the hyperemic, indurated limbalsparing inflammation, since sudden death occurs in 1% to 2% of the patients and the reported incidence is increasing.
