Kawasaki Disease – A guide for families and carers

Facing a diagnosis of Kawasaki Disease can be an extremely difficult and upsetting time for families. This guide is intended to help you understand more about Kawasaki Disease, and provide some sources of information and support which are available for you.

This guide has been written to provide information for families and carers, who have just been told their child has Kawasaki Disease. It’s been produced by Societi Foundation with clinical leadership from experts including Professor Robert Tulloh, Professor Paul Brogan, Dr Jethro Herberg and Dr Filip Kucera. Their contributions are gratefully acknowledged!

A huge thank you to all our wonderful families who helped develop and review this booklet.
