Kawasaki's disease is an inflammatory syndrome of young children that affects multiple organ systems. The most common ophthalmologic manifestations of Kawasaki's disease are bilateral conjunctival injection and non-granulomatous iridocyclitis. To our knowledge, this patient is the first with Kawasaki's disease to demonstrate extraocular muscle palsy and orbital myositis.
