Kimura's disease and angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) together form a spectrum of chronic inflammatory disorders of unknown etiology with similar and overlapping histological features. We report a case of Kimura's disease in a young Indian girl with its cytohistological correlation. The cytological features of these inflammatory disorders are fairly specific and in an appropriate clinical setting, a cytological diagnosis of Kimura's/ALHE is possible. However, it may not be possible to differentiate between the two based on cytology alone.
