There are 36 reports in the English-language literature of Kawasaki disease in adults. We present two additional cases, in one of which retinal vasculitis developed, a previously unreported complication antemortem. We report the first use of intravenous gamma globulin in the United States for treatment of adult-onset Kawasaki disease and review the pertinent literature.
