Kimuras disease is a rare chronic inflammatory disease that presents as a subcutaneous mass in the head and neck region often associated with regional cervical lymphadenopathy. We report a case of Kimuras disease in a 14yr male. who presented with bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy. The diagnosis was based on characteristic histopathological findings in correlation with peripheral eosinophilia and elevated serum Immunoglobulin E levels. The histopathological differential diagnoses have also been discussed.
