Two-dimensional echocardiography (2-DE) was used to demonstrate bilateral coronary artery disease in a 2-month-old child presenting with a mucocutaneous lymph node disease. The classic clinical and laboratory signs of this illness, now known as Kawasaki disease, were reviewed. Identification of the high risk patient prone to developing pericarditis and coronary perivasculitis with subsequent congestive heart failure or myocardial damage is essential for lowering morbidity and mortality rate. The 2-DE successfully demonstrated a large right coronary aneurysm and a markedly abnormal left coronary artery. The 2-DE should be used in every patient suspected of having Kawasaki disease not only to determine coronary artery involvement but also to guide medical management.
