Supplementary Material

We further performed haplotype analysis of CLEC5A genetic polymorphisms in the Susceptibility, CAL Formation, and IVIG Treatment of KD Patients by using the Haploview 4.2 program and PHASE version 2.1, respectively. The haplotype analysis of CLEC5A still failed to show any significant results with the disease activity of KD.
