We present two reports of Kawasaki's disease. The first a five months old male, which was diagnosed through autopsy developed cardiovascular complications (myocarditis, coronary aneurysms, myocardial infarction) which led to death. The second one a two years and ten months old female, which was diagnosed at the fifth day of illness, was treated with aspirin at rate of 100 mg/kg/day and healed without consequences. It is interesting to emphasize the different development as a function of age, sex and precocity of diagnosis.
