Angiolymphoid hyperplasia

Synonym:

Kimura's disease

Angiolymphoid hyperplasia is an acquired eruption, most common on the head and neck, of a spectrum of small, red, rather translucent papules to larger, ill-defined, violaceous subcutaneous nodules.

A peripheral eosinophilia may be present.

Treatment:

  • Spontaneous regression is common within a year.
  • Solitary lesions can be excised.
  • Radiation therapy is also effective, but is reserved for lesions causing a significant functional or cosmetic defect.
