Abstract

Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease (KFD) is a self-limiting condition that typically presents with lymphadenopathy and fever. It’s autoimmune in nature, and possibly associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The case report highlights an unusual case of KFD associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia and provided a review for other atypical presentations.
