Kimura disease is a distinct clinicopathological entity of a benign chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. It is endemic in Oriental Asians, but sporadic and relatively rare in the West, both in whites and blacks alike. It usually presents as a mass lesion, most commonly in the head and neck region. It had for a long time been confused as synonymous with angiolymphoid hyperplasia with esinophilia. It can impose a challenging diagnosis both clinically and pathologically, especially in non-endemic areas with unusual sites involvement...

A 47-year-old male patient with Kimura's disease showed a white and slightly elevated choroidal lesion surrounded by serous retinal detachment in his left eye. Serological examination revealed esinophilia. Swelling in his left cheek had been increasing during a period of 20 years, and diagnosis of Kimura's disease had been made earlier by biopsy. Fluorescein angiography suggested disturbance of choroidal circulation and dysfunction of retinal pigment epithelium. After corticosteroid therapy, improvement was seen in the fundus findings, the swelling in the cheek and eosinophilia...
