Abstract

Kimura disease (KD) is an uncommon chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology, occurs mainly in Asian young males, presenting as subcutaneous growing masses, with a predilection for head and neck, with or without satellite lymphadenopathy. Herein, we report a case of an atypical manifestation of KD accompanied with NS in a middle-aged man, though the patient was clinically misdiagnosed previously. The diagnosis of KD can be difficult and misleading, so we must explore the main points of KD so as to prevent misdiagnosis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 April 2015.
All research outputs
#6,748,463
of 12,450,849 outputs
Outputs from Diagnostic Pathology
#202
of 760 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#90,752
of 224,465 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diagnostic Pathology
#14
of 31 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,450,849 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 760 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 224,465 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 31 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
