Excision biopsy of an enlarged lymph node in the neck -Biopsy Report report confirms kikuchis Disease.
Kikuchi disease, also called histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis disease, is an uncommon, idiopathic, generally self-limited cause of lymphadenitis. Kikuchi first described the disease in 1972 in Japan. Fujimoto and colleagues independently described Kikuchi disease in the same year.
The most common clinical manifestation of Kikuchi disease is cervical lymphadenopathy, with or without systemic signs and symptoms. Clinically and histologically, the disease can be mistaken for lymphoma or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Kikuchi disease almost always runs a benign course and resolves in several weeks to months. Disease recurrence is unusual, and fatalities are rare, although they have been reported.
Treatment with Ciprofloxacin and Steroids have been tried with success.
