Kimura disease (KD) is a chronic benign disorder, primarily seen in Asian males. The major physical manifestation of this disorder is slowly enlarging subcutaneous tumors characterized by the presence of eosinophilic lymphoid hyperplasia [1]. We report a case of Kimura's disease involving the subcutaneous layer of the left elbow, present with a palpable painless mass enlarging slowly over the past eight months. MRI shows an ill defined subcutaneous mass of high signal intensity on T1-and T2-weighted images with intense enhancement, surrounding subcutaneous edema, and internal flow voids which are typical of Kimura's disease.
