The Teaching Point

Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease is rare. Presentation with bilateral uveitis is even more rare. However, the radiologic manifestations of uveitis may be applicable to a variety of inflammatory processes and so are important for the radiologist to recognize. Detection of these findings may aid the radiologist, ophthalmologist and pathologist in arriving at the correct diagnosis.

Abstract
Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD), also called histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is rare condition that usually presents with lymphadenitis and fever. KFD has been associated with many infectious disease processes, predominantly viral. Association with systemic inflammatory processes has been described. Here we present a case of KFD with the rare ocular manifestation of bilateral anterior uveitis, and corresponding findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
