Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile vasculitis of infancy and early childhood. It is uncommon in early infancy, because a significant proportion of these children do not meet the classical diagnostic criteria at this age. Infants younger than 6 months with persistent fever and some of the criteria of Kawasaki disease should always raise suspicion for Kawasaki disease early to avoid delayed diagnosis with severe cardiac complications. We present a 35-day-old infant with incomplete Kawasaki disease complicated with myocardial infarction during chicken pox.
