Kimura's disease is an idiopathic chronic condition, associated with a high-titer of IgE and peripheral eosinophilia. It frequently presents as a solitary or multiple lesions in the head and neck area. During the perioperative period, anesthesiologists should understand the anatomical structures of the patient who has Kimura's disease involvement of the head and neck, especially the airway. It is important to pay attention to the occurrence of signs and symptoms of acute allergic reactions related to a high-titer of IgE and eosinophilia. We report our experience with anesthetic management in an 18-year-old patient with multiple neck masses due to Kimura's disease.
Key Words: Kimura's disease, Airway management
