In brief: IV Gamma Globulin
Kawasaki disease is a disease of unknown cause that can lead to aneurysms in the coronary arteries of the heart.
The current standard of care is to treat with IV gamma globulin (ivig) and place the child on Aspirin therapy. A cardiology consult is recommended. I know of no cases of "mild kawasaki disease." either it is present or not.
