Abstract

Kimura's disease (KD) is a benign, multi-system chronic inflammatory condition characterized by hyperplastic lymphadenopathy and subcutaneous nodules due to inflammatory eosinophilic infiltrates. It has a predilection for the head and neck region and is almost always accompanied by peripheral eosinophilia and elevated serum IgE levels. Here we report a case of eosinophilic pneumonia (EP) as part of the clinical presentation in Kimura's disease.
