Angiolymphoid Hyperplasia with Eosinophilia - Symptoms & Treatment
Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia is an ostensibly non-malignant, locally proliferating lesion composed of channels of small blood vessels surrounded by lymphocytes and eosinophils (these are two types of white blood cell). In Kimura's illness the lesions are deeper-seated, with no first overlying skin lesions. In angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia the lesions are smaller and characterised by thick-walled alleged histiocytoid other epithelioid blood vessels. Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia has been reported from many parts of the globe but appears to be specifically general in Japan.
