" perinatal and infant infections exposures might alter infant immune development........"

"....perhaps the same genetic factors now being studied that are associated with KD could also predispose to other conditions such as bacterial infections...."

Interesting, stating that the same genetic factor for KD could predispose a child to respitory bacterial illness - not suggest bacterial respitory illness as a cause of KD.
