Kawasaki disease is a small-to-medium vasculitis that preferentially affects children under 5 years of age. A case of Kawasaki disease of atypical clinical debut with splenomegaly and analysis of follow-up period over 10 years with a formation of coronary aneurysms is reported. This case highlights the importance of international survеy for Kawasaki disease that can help to elaborate new diagnostic criteria for the patients of various age groups, to optimize the treatment strategy and to prevent the cardiac complications.(original abstract)
