Happy Birthday, Dr. Tomisaku Kawasaki - 川崎富作医师!
On 5 Jan 1961, Dr. Kawasaki saw a feverish four year old boy whom nobody in hospital knew what was wrong. No treatment is able to ease the fever and symptoms. The boy was eventually discharged without a diagnosis. By 1967, more similar strange cases appeared and Doctor Kawasaki realised he is looking at a new disease. He later published his findings which proved to be of paramount importance to the pediatrics world.
Join us in celebrating his 92nd birthday by wishing him a happy birthday today. Thank you Dr. Kawasaki for identifying this childhood disease which is so easily mis-diagnosed, and for all the little hearts you have helped save. #drkawasakiturns92
