Fever, conjunctivitis, rash, and belly pain

KD case study written by two medical doctors highlights that children with KD and prominent GI (gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms of abdominal pain and diarrhea) or hepatobiliary (having to do with the liver plus the gallbladder, bile ducts, or bile) involvement appear to be at a higher risk for IVIG failure. Furthermore, ultrasound findings of gall bladder disease in the acute phase of KD, especially the presence of gall bladder distention, might be an important risk factor for coronary artery abnormalities as a complication.
