- Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia(ALHE) is a benign subcutaneous lesion that primarily affects head and neck region. It is characterized by single or multiple nodules in the subcutaneous tissue associated with eosinophilia in the peripheral blood. Kimura's disease, originally reported by Kimura et al., is similar lesion with ALHE in the clinical and histopathological aspects. There has been considerable controversy about the relation between Kimura's disease and ALHE. In Korea, 26 cases of Kimura's disease and ALHE have been reported since 1975. We present a case of recurred ALHE occurring on the left cheek in a 58-year-old woman. Including this case, we summarized all cases that were reported as Kimura's disease or ALHE in Korea through literature review. We also give an outline of clinical and histopathological characteristics of cases reported in Korea.
