Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) and Kimura’s disease were classified as same disease in the past. Since there are many different clinical and histopathological characteristics that warranted their distinction, they are classified as different disease now. Six cases of Kimura’s disease in upper extremity have been reported in Korean literature but ALHE in upper extremity has not been reported yet. We experienced a case of surgically treated ALHE in the upper arm and report this case with review of literature.
