Kawasaki disease (KD) is a systemic vasculitis commonly associated with coronary artery aneurysms. Small-sized and medium-sized systemic arterial aneurysms have also been described, particularly in infants and patients with resistant KD. This case illustrates the presentation of a systemic arterial aneurysm complicated by arterial thrombosis and successful interventional management in a young infant.
