And then look at the diagnosis. I’d heard of Kawasaki’s disease, but I couldn’t remember much about it. I realise that science frowns on Wikipedia, but often the articles there are succinct and to the point. You can see the wiki-article on Kawasaki’s disease by clicking here.
The lymphocyte count and the ESR results both fit the diagnosis…
