Kimura disease and anesthetic management: case report and review

Eunsu Kang, Jae-Wook Jung.

We report a 36-year-old male patient with an unknown immune disease who underwent emergency thromboembolectomy of both popliteal arteries. General anesthesia was unremarkable and extubation was performed without any problem. After the surgery, his medical history revealed that he had Kimura disease, leading to further evaluation. Seventeen days after emergency operation, left popliteal artery thromboembolectomy was perfomred again. Anesthetic management was performed in a similar way. Anesthesiologists are not familiar with Kimura disease and careful attention and sufficient preparation can lead to safe anesthesia.

Key words: Anesthetic management, Kimura disease
