To report a case of Kawasaki disease (KD) with disciform keratitis and anterior uveitis. A 12-year-old male case with KD presented with a visual acuity of 6/10 in both eyes. Biomicroskopic examination showed corneal stromal edema, anterior uveitis and disciform keratitis with keratic precipitates. Pacimetric examination revealed corneal thickening in both eyes. Tonometry and fundoscopic examination was normal. After medical treatment visual acuity increased to 10/10 in both eyes and corneal edema and anterior uveitis resolved. KD presentes often with ocular findings. Ophthalmologic consultation is helpful for early recognition of the KD and for treatment of cases with ophthalmic complications.
