Kimura disease (KD) is an uncommon idiopathic inflammatory disease (Khoo and Chan, Cutis 70(1):57–61, 2002 ). This chronic inflammatory soft tissue disease is characterized by lymphoid and angiomatous tissue proliferation with lymphadenopathy, eosinophilia, and elevated serum IgE levels (Khoo and Chan, Cutis 70(1):57–61, 2002 ). Lesions are usually located on the head and neck area (Kung et al., Pathology 16:39–44, 1984 ), and the disease is more common among Asians. In this study, we present a patient with a diffuse mass on his left side of the face from the parotid area to the temporal fossa, who is also suffering from nephrotic syndrome. A review of the literature is presented.
