Abstract: This study aims to improve the understanding of cardiovascular complications of KDSS by retrospectively analyzing the echocardiographic manifestations of children with Kawasaki disease shock syndrome (KDSS) in the acute phase. A total of 20 children diagnosed as KDSS and 41 children diagnosed as hemodynamically stable Kawasaki disease (KD) were collected as study subjects to compare their echocardiographic characteristics in the acute phase. There were no statistically significant differences in age and sex between the KDSS group and the control group; the incidence of coronary artery dilatation and mitral regurgitation in the acute phase of echocardiographic manifestation was significantly higher than that of the control group, and the differences were statistically significant (P<0.05). KDSS is more likely to cause cardiovascular system complications and requires closer echocardiographic monitoring; mitral regurgitation is a characteristic manifestation of KDSS in the acute phase.
