Abstract

We present the first reported case of a child with Kawasaki disease (KD) complicated by meningoencephalitis and an acute focal demyelinating lesion. Neurologic outcome in this patient was excellent without any persistent neurologic deficits. We also review the neurologic complications associated with KD.
