Kikuchi-Fujimoto’s Disease (KFD) is basically a benign, rare disorder of the lymph nodes of the cervical region. Otolaryngologists who are mainly involved in the diagnosis and management of neck masses are virtually unaware of this disease. We report a case of an Asian pregnant woman presenting with cervical lymphadenopathy associated with fever and sore throat. Aetiology, pathology, differential diagnosis, associated diseases and treatment options arediscussed in brief. This paper was written to increase the awareness of this disease among the practising otolaryngologists and to include this entity in the differential diagnosis of neck masses.
