Kimura's disease (KD) is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of subcutaneous tissues and occurs predominantly in head and neck region. It is seen primarily in young Asian males. Typical clinical presentations are painless subcutaneous masses, regional lymph node enlargement, blood and tissue hypereosinophilia, and increased serum IgE levels. Here, we present a case of a 27-year-old female who presented with unilateral single nodular swelling in the right postauricular region. The diagnosis of KD was done based on characteristic histopathologic finding in conjunction with peripheral eosinophilia and increase in serum IgE levels.
