Mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome (Kawasaki disease): delayed aortic and mitral insufficiency secondary to active valvulitis.


A 2 8/12 year old girl with acute mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome (Kawasaki disease), presented 17 months later with a new onset of mitral and aortic insufficiency. Congestive heart failure rapidly developed and double valve replacement was performed. Pathologic study of the excised valve tissue disclosed active valvulitis. This is the first report of late onset aortic and mitral valvulitis associated with Kawasaki disease.
