PURPOSE: Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD) is a rare disorder, thought to be viral in etiology, characterized mostly by tender cervical lymphadenopathy which can be accompanied with fever and night sweats. KFD has a higher prevalence among Japanese individuals and extensive literature search resulted in less than 30 fully described cases in the United States with even fewer cases presenting predominantly with respiratory symptoms. Its recognition however is important so as not to be confused with other disorders such as systemic lupus (SLE), malignant lymphoma, or pneumonia, as treatment for KFD is supportive.
