Kawasaki disease is an acute multisystemic vasculitis occurring predominantly in infants and young children and rarely in adolescents and adults. At elderly age, Kawasaki disease may remain unrecognized with a subsequent delay in appropriate therapy and an increased risk of coronary artery aneurysms. We report a case of intravenous immunoglobulin- and aspirin-resistant Kawasaki disease and severe cardiovascular damage in an adolescent boy. The article discusses major issues associated with the management of refractory Kawasaki disease.
