In brief: Yes

New onset kawasaki disease usually responds to one or more IV infusions of gamma globulin followed by high dose Aspirin during the acute phase followed by low dose Aspirin in the later phase.
A workup including examination of the heart is done to monitor occasional aneurysms in the heart blood vessels.Later management depends on response to the early rx.
