摘要

Kimura's disease (KD) is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown aetiology. It usually presents as soft-tissue masses predominantly in the head or neck region. We report a case of an asymptomatic tumour on the left earlobe mimicking a keloid. The tumour was histopathologically diagnosed as KD. This case suggests the importance of conducting skin biopsies of keloidal lesions on head and neck regions, particularly in patients who have peripheral eosinophilia and increased IgE levels.
