Introduction: Kimura's disease (KD) is an allergic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology endemic in Orientals. Kimura's disease was first mentioned by Kimm and Szeto in China in 1937. Kimura's disease is commonly encountered in Asia and is mostly reported in Japan, China, Singapore and Honkong. However, only a few cases have been reported in the Indian subcontinent. Case Report: A case of Kimura's disease in a young male managed by surgery is reported in addition to a literature review. Conclusion: Diagnosis is made on the basis of histopathological analysis, clinical presentation, and laboratory investigations. Long term follow-up is required as Kimura's disease is prone for recurrence.
