Abstract

Kimura's disease (KD) is an allergic, inflammatory disorder of unknown cause. The typical presentation is in a young Oriental male with nontender subcutaneous swellings in the head and neck region, lymphadenopathy, peripheral eosinophilia, and elevated serum IgE. Many patients with KD also develop renal involvement. Treatment options range from conservative observation for asymptomatic patients to surgical excision, steroid therapy, and radiotherapy for symptomatic patients. Two cases of KD are presented. These emphasize not only the variability of disease presentation, but also the pitfalls of therapy leading to frequent recurrences. The literature is reviewed, summarizing patient presentation, differential diagnosis, current theories on causation, and therapy. A treatment protocol is also proposed.
