Introduction: Kawasaki disease happens mostly in children less than 5 years of age and presents itself as an acute and self-limiting disease with world wide spread. One of the important consequences of this disease, if undetected, is the cardiovascular morbidity that caused by the disease. The aim of this study was to determine demog-raphic findings about cardiovascular afflict-tions in Kawasaki patients. Materials & Methods: The study was a descriptive and retrospective study and data were provided through reviewing of medi-cal records of Kawasaki patients who had been hospitalized between 1998 to 2003 at Imam Hossein and Mofid Children's Hosp-ital. Finding: In the aforementioned period, 97 patients with Kawasaki disease were hospit-alized in two centers, 65(67.1%) males and 32(32.9%) female). 75(77.3%) patients we-re under the age of 5 years and 22(22.7%) were older than 5 years. 32(32.9%) patients had one or more heart involvements. The number of patients with heart involvements were 20 males (62.5%) and 12 females (37.5%). The most heart involvements were pericardial effusion (23.7%) and the least heart involvements were coronary artery dilation and aortic stenosis(2%).
