Abstract
Kimura’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease with unknown etiology. The most common clinical presen-tation of Kimura’s disease is non-tender unilateral mass in the head and neck area, but bilateral involvement has rarely been reported. Histopathological confirmation should be taken for the diagnosis. Various management op-tions are available, including surgical excision, steroid therapy, and radiotherapy. We report a male patient diagnosed as Kimura’s disease involving bilateral retro-auricular region. Simultaneous bilateral neck involvement is an ex-tremely rare finding. For cosmetic reasons, the patient was treated surgically, with satisfactory postoperative results. When evaluating patients with mass lesion in bilateral parotid/retro-auricular area, Kimura’s disease should be con-sidered as differential diagnosis.
Key Words: Eosinophilic granuloma, Bilateral
