Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease (KFD) is a self-limiting, necrotizing, histiocytic lymphadenitis (NHL) of unknown etiopathogenesis. So far in Nepal not a single case of this disease in the cervical region leading to progressive inspiratory stridor has been reported till date. Here a case of 26 years old Nepalese house wife suffering from this disease, which is histopathologically proved as KFD with complete recovery is presented.
