Successful treatment of Kimura's disease with cyclosporine.

We report the case of a 29-year-old Japanese woman presenting with recurring Kimura's disease. We began treatment with cyclosporine within 7 days, the nodular lesion had almost cleared. The cyclosporine dose was then gradually reduced and discontinued after 6 months. The patient was reassessed 18 months after the cessation of treatment and there was no evidence of recurrence of the disease. We speculate that the effects of cyclosporine on T helper-2 cells improves Kimura's disease.
