Facial palsy is an unusual complication associated with Kawasaki disease, with only a few published case reports. We report two patients with typical Kawasaki disease and facial palsy. Both had coronary artery aneurysms and were treated with intravenous immunoglobulin. The facial palsy resolved completely over the next several months in both patients. Coronary artery aneurysms resolved completely in one patient, and the other has not regressed to normal till now. The incidence of coronary artery aneurysm appears to be higher in the handful of reported cases of Kawasaki disease with facial palsy.
