Kimura's disease is a rare idiopathic chronic inflammatory disease which usually presents as deep-seated subcutaneous swelling in the head and neck region. Accompanied by lymphadenopathy, peripheral eosinophilia, and elevated immunoglobulin E levels, it is more prevalent among young Asian males. Here, I report the case of a 20-year-old male presenting with left posterior cervical lymph node swelling. Based on proper clinical setting and characteristic cytological features, a cytological diagnosis of Kimura's disease was rendered which was later confirmed by histopathological examination.
