Abstract

Kimura's disease rarely involves a location outside the head and neck. We report a case of Kimura's disease in a young Asian man involving both elbows. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a soft-tissue mass of irregularly infiltrative strands in the subcutaneous fat accompanied with medial epitrochlear lymphadenopathy. The MRI appearance is described and the entity is briefly reviewed.
