Once thought to be an east Asian disease, predominantly Japanese, cases of Kikuchi‘s disease have been reported from other parts of Asia, Europe and America.The major clinical finding is painless cervical lymphadenopathy, mostly unilateral and involves posterior cervical lymph nodes. Routine laboratory investigations doesn’t help in diagnosis. Accurate diagnosis is established by excisional biopsy of the effected lymph node. . It is usually self-limiting and treatment is mainly symptomatic. Recurrence has been reported in some cases. Our case appears to be an interesting variant as multiple relapses and remissions were observed with are always self-limiting and resolve without any specific medication or treatment.

Key words: Cervical lymphadenopathy, Histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, Kikuchi – Fujimoto disease
