Abstract

Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile multisystem vasculitis. Multisystem might involment. Gastrointestinal symptoms frequently occur including diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and vomiting. Serum aminotransferases elevated, gallbladder hydrops also were reported. Intestinal pseudoobstruction is a rarely form of gastrointestinal involvement. In this paper, we report two cases they presented with intestinal pseudo obstruction. Case one was a complete Kawasaki disease. She developed intestinal pseudo obstruction after IVIG and oral aspirin. Case 2 was a reoccurrence of Kawasaki disease. Her gastrointestinal symptoms presented with abdominal distension. Both patients have fluid and gas levels in the intestine in plain abdominal X-ray film. And the symptom resolved in a day.
