Kimura's disease (KD) is a nonneoplastic, chronic, inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. The present study was done to know the varied spectrum of cytohistologic features in KD. The predominant cytological features of KD are significant number of eosinophils in a background of lymphoid population of cells. Though FNAC can just be a pointer to the diagnosis, it still plays a very pivotal role. Constellation of blood eosinophilia, raised serum immunoglobulin E (IgE), and cytological features help in confident diagnosis of KD.
