Table 8 Severity classification of coronary artery aneurysms in Kawasaki disease

From: Kawasaki disease: guidelines of the Italian Society of Pediatrics, part I - definition, epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, clinical expression and management of the acute phase

I. No coronary dilatation: patients with no coronary dilatation including those in the acute phase
II. Transient coronary dilatation during the acute phase: patients with slight and transient coronary dilatation which typically subsides within 30 days after onset
III. Regression: patients who still exhibit coronary aneurysms meeting the criteria for dilatation or more severe change on day 30 after onset, despite complete disappearance of changes in the bilateral coronary artery systems during the first year after onset, and who do not meet the criteria for Group V
IV. Remaining coronary aneurysm: patients in whom unilateral or bilateral coronary aneurysms are detected by coronary angiography in the second year or later and who do not meet the criteria for Group V
V. Coronary stenotic lesions: patients with coronary stenotic lesions detectable by coronary angiography
 (a) Patients without ischemic findings: patients without ischemic signs/symptoms detectable by laboratory tests or other examinations
 (b) Patients with ischemic findings: patients with ischemic signs/symptoms detectable by laboratory tests or other examinations
