We report the case of a young woman, who presented a sus-clavicular adenopathy with fever and inflammatory syndrome. A cervico-thoracic scan reveals sus-clavicular and hilar adenopathies with central necrosis. Laboratory studies, including blood culture and viral serologies were negative, and excluded an infectious aetiology. Clinical features and anti-nuclear antibody tests were not compatible with an inflammatory autoimmune disease. Bone marrow examination and lymph node histology didn't show any malignant cell. Histology analysis of the lymph node showed a typical aspect of histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis. This is compatible with the diagnosis of Kikuchi's disease
