Kimura’s disease is an uncommon allergic disorder of unknown etiology affecting sporadic populations. A male patient in his third decade presented with a swelling in his left facial region. His investigations showed a raised eosinophil count. The lesion was excised surgically. He was put on a short term steroid therapy. Biopsy revealed it as Kimura’s disease. Subsequent follow-ups have been satisfactory with no recurrences.
