Abstract: Kawasaki disease is a mysterious childhood vasculitis. It presents with multi-systemic involvement in which the prolonged high-grade fever and mucocutaneous and lymph node manifestations are the prominent features. Sometimes, the disease has an unusual, atypical or incomplete presentation. Herein, we present a child with hilar lymphadenopathy as a manifestation of Kawasaki disease.

Keywords: Kawasaki disease, children, lymphadenopathy, pulmonary, mediastinum
