Author(s):Nagarekha Kulkarni

Introduction: Kimura’s disease is of unknown etiology. Case report: This report describes an interesting case of Kimura’s disease in an 18 years old male manifesting as a unilateral left sided parotid swelling with multiple cervical lymphadenopathy. There was eosinophilia and increased levels of circulating IgE. Patient was treated with surgical excision and corticotherapy, cetrizine was prescribed. Histologically there were numerous follicles with prominent germinal centres. Interfollicular area was infiltrated with eosinophils and plasma cells. Conclusion: Any swelling in the head and neck region associated with eosinophilia should make one to suspect the Kimura’s disease.
