Abstract

Kawasaki disease (KD) shock syndrome (KDSS) is hypotension with KD. We compared children with KDSS and matched control children with KD. Children with KDSS more often were female, had a lower platelet count and sodium concentration, had a condition refractory to immunoglobulin, and had abnormal echocardiography results. KDSS is a unique subset of KD.
