Mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome represents a series of clinical findings that has been observed primarily in Japanese children. The disease now appears to be migrating to this country. It involves the cervical lymph nodes, the skin, and mucus membranes. Although the course is usually benign and self-limiting, a number of deaths have resulted from coronary artery disease.
