The number of adult patients with coronary artery disease caused by Kawasaki disease (KD) is gradually increasing, but some patients drop out of clinical follow-up. However, careful, long-term follow-up and establishment of an optimal treatment strategy are needed in these patients, as well as cooperation between pediatric and adult cardiologists. We report a case of acute myocardial infarction in a young adult patient with KD whose serial coronary angiography was followed up for over 30 years. Successful reperfusion therapy was performed with thrombus aspiration, rotational atherectomy, and implantation of a drug-eluting stent.
