 Classification criteria for Kawasaki disease

Fever persisting for at least five days (mandatory criterion) plus four of the following five features:
• Changes in peripheral extremities or perineal area
• Polymorphous exanthema
• Bilateral conjunctival injection
• Changes of lips and oral cavity: injection of oral and pharyngeal mucosa
• Cervical lymphadenopathy
In the presence of coronary artery involvement(detected on echocardiography)and fever, fewer than four of the remaining five criteria are sufficient (the exact number of criteria required is to be defined in the validation phase).
