  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Two cases of eosinophilic granuloma, Kimura's disease, involving the soft tissues of the face and neck are reported.

 In the first case the patient complained of toothache prior to the appearance of the cheek swelling and the fact that dental treatment aggravated the swelling focal infection was considered as highly possible as a causative factor.

 In the case Ⅱ many dental caries are found but their connection to the regional swellings was not established so vividly as the case Ⅰ.

 The treatment in case Ⅰ consisted of administration of antibiotics in combination of steroid therapy. The swelling receded considerably under such therapy but soon recurred again. Such a process is continually repeated. In case Ⅱ the swellings were removed by means of surgical procedure and the patient was treated by a combined antibiotic and steroid therapy. There is no recurrence seen after 6 months of the surgery.
