Possibly: Since doctors are not sure what exactly causes kawasaki disease, the answer is not known exactly. There are theories about possible infectious causes due to the seasonality of the illness. There are also some possible genetic causes due to a high prevalence in some Asian ethnicities especially the japanese. Those genetic factors could be passed to your offspring.
