A diagnosis of Kawasaki disease may be overlooked, delayed or missed in the U.S. because it is rarer in the U.S. than in Japan. Some symptoms may also initially be attributed to more common conditions. Symptoms, such as fever, nausea, vomiting, cough and joint pain are similar to symptoms of more common conditions, such as influenza, upper respiratory infection, strep throat, or food poisoning.
Pinpointing a diagnosis can also be difficult because there is no specific test to diagnose Kawasaki disease. Because of the risks of developing serious, even life-threatening complications, such as aneurysms and heart attack, it is vital that children with symptoms of Kawasaki disease are evaluated emergently.
