mild dilation of LA, LV after Kawasaki disease
My three-year-old son was recently treated for Kawasaki Disease. He responded to ivig, and his arteries are fine. However, his LA, LV are mildly dilated (on echo). His systolic function is normal. He had mild mitral regurgitation.

The doctors say this is a very rare complication for KD. They're hoping the dilation goes away on its own. (It's been just over a week since we got out of the hospital, and we've already done one follow-up echo with no change). If it doesn't go away, what are we dealing with? Is this dilated cardiomyopathy? He's on low-dose aspirin and enalapril. They are watching him very closely - scheduled another echo for two weeks from now.

But I'm not getting straight answers, and I'm afraid it's because it's not good.
