angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia

angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia
a type of erythematous dermal or subcutaneous nodule, usually on the head or neck of a young adult, found singly or in groups, sometimes with lymphadenopathy, and characterized histologically by lymphoid hyperplasia, angioid proliferation, and tissue eosinophilia. The more superficial, usually larger, lesions have been called pseudopyogenic granuloma. See also Kimura disease, under disease.
