Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease is a relatively rare self-limiting histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis of unknown etiology. The disease predominantly presents as unilateral cervical lymphadenopathy accompanied with constitutional symptoms. The diagnosis is made by excluding other causes of necrotizing lymphadenopathy. We report a case of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease in a young south Indian female who also had a Multinodular Goitre. This case is being discussed to highlight a diagnostic dilemma that may arise and a diagnosis of metastatic carcinoma may be made if one is not aware of Kikuchi–Fujimoto disease.
