Resumo: Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease is characterized by fever and lymphadenopathy, usually localized in the cervical region. This disease principally affects young females. It can be confused with lymphoma, adenocarcinoma metastasis and tuberculosis. We report two cases of Kikuchi‑Fujimoto disease. In the first case, a 28-year-old female had been treated for tuberculosis one year prior and presented with a clinical and histological profile consistent with Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease. The second patient, a 58-year-old female, initially received treatment for Wegener’s granulomatosis and, subsequently, for tuberculosis. Histopathological examination followed by immunohistochemical analysis confirmed the diagnosis of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease in both cases. After the definitive diagnosis had been made, both patients were treated symptomatically, and both presented clinical improvement within one month. Subsequently, the latter patient developed systemic lupus erythematosus.
