Link between Kawasaki and Leukemia?

Posted By Michelle on April 05, 1998 at 18:41:03:







My son was diagnosed by a Pediatric Cardiologist with Kawasaki Syndrome when he was 15 mons old.  He received gamma globulin and was "instantly"
cured.  He is now 4 yrs old. My son has bouts of constant nosebleeds and tested negative for leukemia approx 2 years ago.  He also suffered from
high, unexplained fevers for an extended period of time after the
wasaki's.  I recently met a woman whose son had leukemia and she said
I might want to have my son retested for the leukemia as it may just not
have shown up at the time of the first blood test.  Other than the
nosebleeds and fevers (which he only gets occasionally now)he appears to
be healthy. Could there be a connection between the two?  Am I being
paranoid?
