Kimura disease presents as a benign subcutaneous mass. Although it principally affects the skin and soft tissues, there is a high prevalence of related renal disease. We report a case of Kimura disease from western Asia, presenting itself as nephrotic syndrome, and this case was seen at a nontransplant kidney presenting with focal segmental glomerulonephritis.
