Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) has become widely accepted in the evaluation of adult patients with coronary heart disease. There are new challenges about the use of DSE in the pediatric age group to document ischemia. DSE can demonstrate ischemia noninvasively in Kawasaki disease (KD) patients who are candidates for coronary angiography. We wanted to assess the feasibility and the physiologic responses of DSE in a KD patient with coronary aneurysm. The patient had no ischemia in DSE, which was confirmed by coronary angiography showing no stenosis. The literature about DSE use in KD is reviewed.
