FIGUEIREDO, M.C. et al. Oral considerations of Kawasaki syndrome: A case report. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.4, pp.203-207. ISSN 2340-3152.

The aim of this study is to review what literature presents about Kawasaki Disease (KD), common in patients with special needs. Clinical evidence of this pathology may be observed in young children, who are usually less than five years old. This pathology may lead patients to death since it involves serious heart conditions. There are signs and symptoms in the oral cavity during the acute phase, for example "strawberry" tongue, red lesions with lips fissure and red lesions of oral mucous. Therefore it is important for the dentist to know about this pathology in order to send the patient to urgent medical treatment. A peculiar characteristic was observed in this case, long term retention of temporary dentition. Once the disease has been diagnosed and treated, it allows dentists to plan long term and safe treatment. That may stop permanent dentition to go through an ectopic outbreak, besides keeping a custom oral prophylaxis and preserving these patients' oral health.

Palavras-chave : Kawasaki disease; mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome; oral cavity; patients with special needs; heart endanger.
