Dr. Basavaraja C, Dr. Aniruddha Desai, Dr. Anjana Kaza, Dr. Siddharth Kalke

Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease (KFD) was first described in Japan in 1972. It is a benign and self-limited disorder, characterized usually by regional cervical lymphadenopathy with tenderness, usually accompanied with mild fever and night sweats. Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease is an extremely rare disease. Diagnosis requires histopathologic examination and exclusion of other factors by ancillary studies. Treatment involves supportive measures, and the symptoms usually resolve spontaneously within 4 months. Although a rare presentation, Kikuchi disease can present similarly to Abdominal Tuberculosis & treatment approach varies. Necrotic lymph nodes should raise the suspicion of the disease. Here we present to you a case report of a similar case with a disease presenting similar to tuberculosis but yet completely different from it.
