FIRST PARAGRAPH: Kimura disease is a rare, chronic inflammatory disorder that involves subcutaneous tissues, predominantly those in the head and neck region. Its etiology is unknown, but it is frequently associated with regional lymphade-nopathy and/or salivary gland involvement. Kimura disease has a predilection for males of Asian descent. Clinically, it can simulate a neoplasm, and most patients have peripheral blood eosinophilia and elevated serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels.
