Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is currently the standard treatment for Kawasaki disease (KD). Although IVIG therapy is generally well tolerated, several minor adverse reactions have been reported. We report a patient with KD treated with IVIG, who developed a cutaneous reaction in the convalescent phase (approximately 10 days after therapy). We identified seven additional KD cases with a similar presentation, accounting for 9.3 % of KD patients at our hospital. We performed a literature review and found that a maculopapular rash could be observed approximately 10 days after IVIG treatment, in patients with and those without KD. Conclusion: Maculopapular rash can occur in nearly 10 % of IVIG-treated children with KD in our cohort, approximately 10 days after treatment. A delayed-onset adverse event of IVIG could be a causative etiology of this unrecognized eruption.
