Mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome (Kawasaki dIsease) in Israel. A review of 13 cases: is pseudomonas infection responsible?


In this report the clinical, laboratory and histopathological findings of 13 children with Mucocutaneous Lymph Node Syndrome (Kawasaki disease; MCLS) are reviewed. This is the first report of a series with a description of the clinical findings as well as pathological findings in patients from Israel. Pseudomonas infection appeared to be the underlying cause of both the clinical symptoms and the pathological changes of some (or all) cases of Kawasaki disease.
