What is kimura's disease?

Kimura disease is a rare, noncancerous chronic inflammatory disease characterized by lymph node enlargement in the head and neck, often accompanied by eosinophilia (high level of disease-fighting white blood cells known as eosinophils in the blood) and increased serum IgE (a type of antibody). The cause is unknown but could be due to allergic reactions, trauma, or immune system problems. It's more common in young men of Asian race.
