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
Kimuras disease. Postoperatively, no recurrences
were detected within a year follow-up.
