Kimura's disease: clinical and imaging parameters for the prediction of disease recurrence

      Abstract

      Kimura's disease is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder with a high rate of recurrence. The clinical and imaging features of Kimura's disease have been documented in the literature, but the relationship between these features and disease recurrence is still unclear. We conclude that disease duration of greater than 5 years, bilateral involvement, a lesion diameter of greater than 3 cm, a blood eosinophil count greater than 20%, and ill-defined lesions are predictive factors for the recurrence of Kimura's disease.
