Typical KD criteria include fever going on for more than 5 days, cervical adenopathy
, nonpurulent bilateral conjunctival injection, oral mucosal changes, hand-foot changes in extremities and polymorfic rash on body.
The rash and cervical adenopathy
(1,2) The signs and symptoms of GAS pharyngitis include an abrupt onset of a sore throat, tonsillar exudate, tender cervical adenopathy
