Kimura’s disease (KD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder primarily seen in male Asians during the second and third decades of life. Clinically, it presents as solitary or multiple subcutaneous nodules, predominantly in the head and neck region, typically in the pre auricular region, forehead, and scalp. The etiology of Kimura disease is still unknown. This disorder should be suspected when the clinical triad of painless unilateral cervical adenopathy, hypereosinophilia, and hyper-IgE is present. We report a case of KD with multiple subcutaneous nodules in the parotid, submandibular and posterior auricular regions, hypereosinophilia and hyper IgE levels.
