Kawasaki Disease or Incomplete Kawasaki Disease Clinical Pathway — Emergency Department and Inpatient

Patient with Suspected Kawasaki Disease

This pathway is meant to guide the evaluation of patients with suspected Kawasaki disease (KD) and incomplete KD, and to guide treatment if admitted and diagnosed.

Clinical decision-making should be individualized to specific patient circumstances.

The pathway should be used for:

  • Patients presenting with ≥ 3 days of fever and any principal clinical features
  • AND/OR
  • Infants ≤ 6 months old with ≥ 7 days of unexplained fever


Patients without clinical features of KD
Patients with KD with shock or KD with macrophage-activation syndrome (treatment as indicated)
