Recent studies have suggested that serum microRNAs (miRNAs) are novel biomarkers for many cardiovascular diseases, but their role in Kawasaki disease (KD) is still unclear. We demonstrated that serum miR-92a-3p levels were significantly higher in children with KD compared with children with fever and controls (both P < 0.05). When the disease recovered, miR-92a-3p levels returned to those of controls. Clinical and pathological data showed that high levels of miR-92a-3p were significantly associated with coronary artery lesions (CALs). Analysis of the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve showed that serum miR-92a-3p had a sensitivity of 81.8% and a specificity of 66.7% for distinguishing KD with CALs from KD without CALs. The area under the curve was 0.816 (P < 0.05, 95% CI 0.669–0.962). Therefore, the miRNA miR-92a-3p may be used as a potential biomarker for diagnosis of KD and KD with coronary artery lesions.
