URRUTIA MORA, Osvaldo; CABREJA SILOT, Norge; TORRES MOLINA, Alexander  y  DURAN CABOVERDE, Diorgis. Kawasaki  Disease Clinical-Epidemiological Incidence. ccm [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.2, pp.345-356. ISSN 1560-4381.

Introduction: Kawasaki disease is a systematic arteritis of unknown origin, considered a worldwide emergent disease. There is not a biological indicator allowing a safe diagnosis, this is based in an association of grouped symptoms and signs according to clinical criteria. Objective: to characterize clinically the diagnosed patients at Pedro Sotto Alba Moa Paediatric Hospital of Moa. Method: a series of cases study which included the five patients with Kawasaki disease diagnosed in Moa, in the period from January 2007 to December 2012.  There was a deep revision of the clinical histories checked during the admission. Descriptive statistic tables were used. Results: one hundred per cent of cases were males and 80% of them were three years old. Fever during more than five days of evolution, exanthema, adenitis and conjunctive injection were presented as diagnosis criteria in 100% cases. The haemoglobin ≤100 g/L, the acceleration of eritrosedimentation over 90 mm/h and the protein c reactive positive were observed as analytical alterations in 100% cases.  Conclusions: there is at least one patient with Kawasaki disease in Moa per year, appearing at the age of three in the male sex. Most of the diagnosis criteria were manifested in all the patients, delaying more than four days in disappearing after the treatment beginning. Only one patient presented cardiovascular complications.
