The commonly involved sites are periauricular, groin, orbit, and eyelids, Coexisting renal disease is common, with an incidence ranging from 10% to 60% .The diagnosis of Kimura's Disease is often difficult, and the biopsy or excision of the involved mass for a pathological study is necessary. The relevance of this, is due to the rarity of the disease which mimics neoplastic conditions, Kimura Disease should be considered as a differential diagnosis in patients presenting with head & neck mass and lymphadenopathy and investigated accordingly.
