Abstract

Different subtypes of vasculitis have been reported after vaccination in adults. However, only one case of Kawasaki disease in an infant after hepatitis B vaccination has been described. We report a case of Kawasaki disease in a 2 month-old infant who developed the Kawasaki disease 1 day after receiving his first dose of diphtheria tetanus-acellular pertussis, Haemophilus b and pneumococcal conjugate vaccine.
