Kimura's disease may rarely present as auricular masses.

It usually presents as soft-tissue masses predominantly in the head or neck region.

The lesion is benign, but it may easily be mistaken for a malignant tumour.

Kimura's disease has been confused with angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE), from which it probably should be distinguished as a separate entity. 

According to Yeh et al. an asymptomatic tumour on the left earlobe, resembled a keloid and it was histopathologically diagnosed as Kimura's disease. They suggested that skin biopsies of keloidal lesions on head and neck regions should be performed, specially in patients who have peripheral eosinophilia and increased IgE levels.
