Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is a rare, benign, self-limiting disease of unknown etiology. It has been reported worldwide but has a higher prevalence in Japanese and Asian populations. It is more frequently seen in women than men and commonly presents between 20 and 40 years of age. It is often characterized by cervical lymphadenopathy and fever lasting for a few months before spontaneous resolution . We present the case of a 32 year old woman with this disorder.
