In this article, we report an infant case of delayed diagnosis of Kawasaki disease. Despite intravenous immunoglobulin, acetylsalicylic acid, immunosupressive and anticoagulant therapy agents, ischemic alterations on electrocardiography and a persistent giant aneurysm in coronary arteries and with a trombus in the left anterior descending artery on repeated echocardiographies were detected. Computed tomography angiography and conventional angiography confirmed the diagnosis. Coronary artery bypass grafting, endarterectomy, and aneurysmorrhaphy were successfully performed at one year of age. The case still remains uneventful during outpatient clinic visits after discharge.
