ABSTRACT
Kimura's disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. A 14 year old boy suffering from steroid dependant nephrotic syndrome, was presented with relapsing painless subcutaneous masses on the left buccal area. Blood analysis showed increased IgE and eosinophilia. During 4 years follow up, he was been treated by low dose steroid and short term cyclosporine. Consequently, frequent relapses of subcutaneous masses and nephrotic syndrome has been relieved. Cyclosporine treatment combined with steroid may be useful for preventing frequent relapse of Kimura's disease.
Key words: Kimura's disease | Steroid dependant nephrotic syndrome | Cyclosporine
