Common sites of involvement are preauricular region, forehead and scalp. The soft tissue localization is often associated with regional lymphadenopathy and enlargement of the major salivary gland. The authors report a patient with KD involving the right parotid and left temporal region managed successfully at our center using a combination of debulking superficial parotidectomy and medicinal therapy. To the best of knowledge of the authors, this is the first completely esthetically treated patient with KD with no clinical evidence of residual disease. © 2017 by Mutaz B. Habal, MD.
