Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is a rare disorder that typically affects the cervical lymph nodes. The disease usually occurs in women in their late 20s or early 30s. Reports in the pediatric literature are sparse. Most authors consider Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease as a self-limiting disorder that requires no specific management but long-term follow-up. The clinical features of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease are easily confused with other less-benign conditions. Thus, an early biopsy is instrumental in making definite diagnosis and preventing unnecessary investigations. We describe a case of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease in an 8-year-old boy which presenting as a submandibular gland tumor. The case illustrates the clinical features of this unusual condition and emphasizes the potential confusion with other diagnoses.
