Kimura’s Disease is a rare condition, its histological features are: Lesions characterized by hyperplasic lymphoid tissue an inflammatory infiltrate rich in Eosinophils and a proliferation of post capillary venules, the patients have high levels of Immunoglobulin E and Eosinophils in their serum. A nephrotic syndrome must always be sought in these patients. The ESR is also raised in most cases. We present an 18 year old male patient who presented with features of Kimura’s disease with HIV infection and look at the possibility of there being a relationship between the two.
