  1. Kawasaki disease in Malta.

    Article - En anglais

    Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile illness of childhood of unknown origin which may cause coronary arteritis and death.

    The Maltese incidence of 3.2/100,000 population<5 years of age is similar to that reported in non-Asiatic communities.

    None of the patients had coronary arteritis or other complications.

    A significant decline in delay to diagnosis was found, attributed to increased awareness of the disease.
