Jett Travolta’s Death Brings Kawasaki Syndrome In Focus

According to Reuters Jett Travolta, the actor John Travolta’s son has died today of a seizure while the family was vacationing in Bahamas. CNN reports that Jett Travolta had a developmental disability that his parents, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, have linked to Kawasaki disease, an inflammatory disorder of the artery walls that most commonly occurs in young children and can lead to heart disease.

Rest of this article is here at Emax Health.

Information on Kawasaki disease here.

The Vasculitis Foundation has information here.

My notes: I am very sorry that John Travolta is experiencing a loss of a child due to this vasculitis disease. It is a very rare disease that can cause further development problems for the child if the child survives.
