A hospital-based survey of Kawasaki disease was performed in all 45 hospitals with in-patient beds in Beijing during the 5-year period from 2000 through 2004. A total of 1107 patients were enrolled, with an annual incidence varying from 40.9 to 55.1 per 100,000 children <5 years of age. The incidence of coronary complications was 20.6% in the acute stage, and 6.9% in the 1-2 month follow-up.
