Kawasaki syndrome is usually treated with a combination of aspirin, to control the patient's fever and skin inflammation, and high doses of intravenous immune globulin to reduce the possibility of coronary artery complications.
As with Kawasaki disease, various infectious organisms have been proposed as the cause of IPAN, including hepatitis B virus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), various retroviruses, streptococci, and even a virus usually found in cats.
Though there is no one test to determine whether a person has Kawasaki disease, doctors generally make the diagnosis by evaluating the patient and ruling out other diseases such as the measles and Scarlet fever.
