Kawasaki disease (KD) is a vasculitis that affects medium-sized arteries and can lead to coronary artery aneurysms. KD should be considered in any infant presenting with prolonged fever. Delaying treatment beyond Day 10 of fever portends a high risk of coronary artery aneurysms. Echocardiography is often necessary to diagnose KD in young infants who frequently present without classic physical examination findings. We report on a case of KD with giant aneurysms in a 2-month-old infant. A combination of transthoracic echocardiography and CT angiography was utilized in the diagnosis as well as in the management of this infant.
