Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our study was to describe the imaging findings of Kimura's disease in the soft tissue of the upper extremity. CONCLUSION. Kimura's disease should be considered as a possible diagnosis when a partially or poorly defined subcutaneous mass of high signal intensity on T1 - and T2-weighted images with homogeneous enhancement, surrounding subcutaneous edema, and internal flow voids is seen in the medial epitrochlear region in an Asian person, especially if accompanied by peripheral eosinophilia.
