Abstract

Multiple lines of evidence suggest that susceptibility to Kawasaki disease (KD) is influenced by host genetics. Subclinical coronary artery vasculitis may be present in monozygotic twins who are discordant for clinical signs of KD. Health care providers should consider laboratory testing and echocardiography in both monozygotic twins when only one twin presents with clinical KD.
