• Three patients had Kimura's disease with multiple asymptomatic subcutaneous tumors of 11 to 20 years' duration on the head, soft palate, elbow, or inguinal regions associated with enlarged regional lymph nodes. In each patient, lichen amyloidosus had also developed on the extensor surfaces of the extremities during the past 12 to 20 years. Blood eosinophilia (26% to 75%) was present in all cases. The possible pathogenetic relationship between Kimura's disease and primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis is discussed.
