Abstract

Coronary artery abnormalities in Kawasaki syndrome develop in about 15-25% of young patients, mostly as aneurysms. In the long-term evolution of coronary artery disease thrombotic occlusion of aneurysms, premature atherosclerosis, and stenosis, are observed. Magnetic resonance is an emerging modality in the angiographic assessment of coronary arteries. The authors report a case of coronary artery aneurysms and stenosis in a 26-year-old patient with Kawasaki disease detected by magnetic resonance coronary angiography and confirmed by conventional coronary angiography.
