Treatment of Kimura disease with intravenous immunoglobulin.

Pediatrics 2011 December
Kimura disease is an uncommon chronic inflammatory condition of unknown etiology and is characterized by painless subcutaneous nodules, usually affecting the head and neck, eosinophilia, and markedly elevated immunoglobulin E levels. Several reports have described the main modalities of treatment; both corticosteroids and surgery have provided good results, but occasionally corticosteroids cannot be tapered as the disease flares up. We report here the case of an 8-year-old boy diagnosed with Kimura disease who was successfully treated with 1 dose of intravenous immunoglobulin as a steroid-sparing agent.
