Coronary Artery Aneurysm Rupture in Kawasaki Disease and SARS-CoV-2 Infection.


• CAA rupture is a rare, life-threatening complication of KD. • SARS-CoV-2 and KD may have a synergistic effect resulting in severe inflammation. • Recognizing specific echocardiogram findings is necessary to diagnosis CAA rupture.
