Red/orange–brown transverse nail bed lines in the acute phase of Kawasaki disease (KD) was a new clinical finding reported initially in 2010. Since then, it has been universally and consistently described in the acute phase of KD and may act as an accessory clinical clue in diagnosis. This article tries to review the clinical implication and the various reports citing this finding over the last 10 years.
