Kawasaki Disease … How Common is it?

Kawasaki Disease is a not often talked about disease, but it is the leading cause of acquired heart disease among children in the United States.

Kawasaki Disease is an inflammation of the entire body that permanently damages the heart and coronary arteries of 1 in 4 children if not treated. Children’s Colorado has one of the few dedicated Kawasaki Disease teams in the country who see 50-60 kids with Kawasaki disease a year.

Cooper Logan, 3, was among those children diagnosed with an extreme case of Kawasaki Disease by the Kawasaki Disease Clinic at Children’s Colorado. Cooper is now running and playing with his brothers like a 3-year-old should.
