Kawasaki disease is a form of vasculitis, mainly in small and medium-sized arteries of
unknown origin, and often occurs in childhood. It is the leading form of heart disease acquired
in childhood in developed countries. Pyelonephritis is not usually associated with Kawasaki,
but hereby we represent a case of Kawasaki disease associated with pyelonephritis; however,
we can’t say whether pyelonephritis had a role in stating Kawasaki and it could be a proper
and valuable topic for research.
