In the past, Kimura's disease and angiolymphoid hyperplasia have often been confused both clinically and histopathologically. This is particularly true in the various series of patients and case reports found in the ophthalmic literature. Concurrent analysis of the demographic, clinical, and pathologic features of these cases allows a clearer understanding and separation of these two, distinct disease entities. Treatment of orbital and adnexal lesions is aimed at surgical extirpation if possible; other treatment modalities may be necessary in other situations or if there is widespread systemic disease.
