Kawasaki Syndrome, or mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome, occurs predominantly in children and rarely in adults. Symptoms include acute vasculitis, mucosal inflammation, rash, cervical adenopathy, hand and foot swelling, and late fingertip desquamation. In the most severe cases, aneurysms develop in one or more coronary arteries. We report a case of Kawasaki syndrome in a young adult athlete. The Spanish Society of Pediatric Cardiology, the Japanese Circulation Society Joint Research Group and the American Heart Association have suggested specific guidelines for physical activity in patients affected by Kawasaki syndrome.
