Kimura's disease in the parotid and submandibular regions: two case reports.
ABSTRACT Two male patients (aged 13 and 50 years) who presented with a complaint of painless mass in the parotid and submandibular regions, respectively, were found to have eosinophilia and increased blood immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels. Following ultrasonographic examination of the masses, surgical excision was performed. Histopathologic evaluation revealed massive lymphocytic and eosinophilic infiltration. Histopathologic findings and the presence of peripheral eosinophilia and high IgE levels led to a diagnosis of Kimura's disease. Postoperatively, no recurrences were detected within a year follow-up.
