Kimura's disease with oral ulcers: response to pentoxifylline.

We describe a man with Kimura's disease whose presentation included lymphadenopathy and cutaneous nodules, but was most distinctive for painful oral ulcerations. His lesions showed an initially moderate, but ultimately minimal response to monthly triamcinolone injections. With oral pentoxyifylline, he showed resolution of all of his lesions for 14 months. On cessation of his treatment, his disease flared for 3 months. When pentoxyifylline was restarted, his lesions regressed again within 4 weeks. We review the literature on Kimura's disease.
