Kimura disease: case report and brief review of literature
Vol 92 No 2 (2019)
Section: Case Report
Kimura disease is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown cause, primarily seen in young Asian males. The disease is characterized by painless subcutaneous swelling, blood and tissue eosinophilia and raised IgE levels. Early diagnosis of Kimura’s disease may spare the patient from unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedure. We describe a case of Kimura disease in a 14-year old male presenting with left submandibular swelling and also provide a brief review of the literature.
