Abstract

Three cases of Kimura's disease or angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia without the characteristic inflammatory infiltrate are reported. These unusual variants support the contention that the common denominator of these vascular lesions, whether they occur in the skin or (more rarely) in extracutaneous sites, is a histiocytoid endothelial cell. Since the composition of the associated inflammatory cell infiltrate is highly variable, a more appropriate term for these lesions is 'histiocytoid hemangioma'.
