Histopathology of Angiolymphoid Hyperplasia with Eosinophilia
(Kimura's Disease)

Description : It is currently believed that the proliferation of endothelial cells in angiolymphoid hyperplasia is an inflammatory reaction rather than a neoplastic process. Deposits of immunoglobulins A and M and the third component of complement (C3) have been demonstrated around many of the capillaries within the lesions. These observations suggest that the vascular proliferations may have an immunologic origin.
