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.
