Kikuchi — fujimoto disease also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis is an idiopathic benign self limiting condition with a favourable outcome, usually affecting young women. The following cases have burn reported for clinical interest and for the rarity of the reports about this condition in ENT literature. In our series, we had 2 female patients aged 18 years and 25 years respectively and a male patient aged 45 years, presenting with fever, bilateral tender multiple cervical adenopathy including posterior triangle nodes not responding to routine antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drug treatment. ENT findings were within normal limits. Routine clinical investigations were within normal limits except for the raised ESR. Biopsy from one of the enlarged glands revealed necrotizing lymphadenitis. All the patients subsequently showed significant improvement locally in the neck and systemically without any further active treatment.
