Kimura disease is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder affecting young males of eastern countries. There are about 200 cases reported in the English literature , with <60 cases involving the parotid gland. It is characterized by abnormal proliferation of lymphoid follicles with eosinophil-rich infiltrate and peripheral eosinophilia. The disease presents as painless cervical lymphadenopathy or subcutaneous masses in the head and neck region. Although recurrence is common, radical surgery is not recommended, as the disease is essentially benign.
