The authors experienced a case of Kawasaki disease complicated by hydrops of the gallbladder in a 3-year old male patient. The main clinical features were colicky abdominal pain, vomiting, jaundice, fever and a palpable tender mass in RUQ in conjunction with the characteristic clinical manifestation of Kawasaki disease. The clinical diagnosis was confirmed by ultrasonography, and the patient was recovered by conserva- tive management without surgical intervention. We reviewed the literatures briefly.
