The present study case report described a 46-month-old girl with Kawasaki disease shock syndrome (KDSS) who presented with five days of fevers, unilateral cervical lymphadenitis, pustular eruption, maculopapular rashes, erythema of palms and soles, conjunctivitis, cracked lips, and shock. Laboratory results showed elevated ESR & CRP, leukocytosis, normocytic anemia, and transaminitis. Pustular eruption Gram and Wright stains demonstrated numerous neutrophils. Echocardiogram showed normal results. Fluid resuscitation, broad spectrum antibiotics, inotropic drug, IVIG, and high dose aspirin were given. Diagnosis of Kawasaki disease was supported by clinical and laboratory features at the acute phase, in conjunction with periungual peeling of fingers and toes and thrombocytosis at the subacute phase. The patient made a complete recovery.The present study case showed an unusual pustular eruption in KDSS. Clinicians should consider these presentations to the diagnosis of KDSS and timely prescribed IVIG, to prevent coronary artery aneurysm.
