Kimura disease is a benign disorder, usually presenting with unilateral lymphadenopathy and subcutaneous nodules in the head and neck region. It has no potential for malignant transformation. Spontaneous involution is rare and the main concern is its capacity to grow and cause disfigurement. We present a case of a young female presenting with unilateral, chronic, cervical and axillary lymphadenopathy. The diagnosis of Kimura's disease was established only on histopathology of the excised axillary lymph node.
