What does anyone know about Kowasaki disease?
My friend just called to tell me that her 18 month old daughter has come down with a "virus" that has caused a high fever, spots in her throat and this is the most frightening... she cannot walk anymore.
Her doctors don't have any answers for her. At first they told her it would go away, but after more than 5 days it still has not and she is becoming increasingly alarmed.
She seems to think that it may be Kowasaki disease and wants to know what people know about it. Oh, I should mention that she was vaxed for MMR and others about a month ago, but she would have shown a reaction sooner if that was the case, right?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
