MEHNDIRATTA, S; RAJESHWARI, K; DUBEY, A P and KUMAR, R. A case of incomplete and refractory Kawasaki disease: Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp.37-38. ISSN 1999-7671.

We report a case of incomplete KD that was refractory to treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin and subsequently responded to treatment with intravenous methylprednisolone.
