Kawasaki disease is an acute multiorgan vasculitis occurs mostly in children between six months and five years of age. The etiology of the disease is unknown, but superantigens may have an important role in the pathogenesis. In this case report, a 10- year old boy is presented with signs of kawasaki disease and despite receiving two high doses intravenous immunoglobulin, cervical lymph nodes continued to enlarge and finally lymph node biopsy revealed angioimmunoblastic like T cell lymphoma. Because the etiology of Kawasaki disease is unknown, if lymphadenopathy persists, other diseases like lymphoma should be considered.
