The diagnosis of Kimura disease should be strongly considered in any patient of Asian descent who presents with painless subcutaneous nodules predominantly involving the head and neck region in association with marked eosinophilia and elevated immunoglobulin E. Surgical resection of the lesions can be performed to prevent relapse. Here, the authors report a case of Kimura disease presenting as an eyelid mass in a 13-year-old Asianboy with pronounced eosinophilia and elevated immunoglobulin E levels.
