Kikuchi-Fujimoto's Disease (KFD), a benign infrequent idiopathic disorder, is suggested to correlate with viral infections and autoimmune disorders, such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Cervical lymphadenopathy and constitutive symptoms are the cardinal KFD manifestations that could also be present in other diseases, including SLE. The overlap diagnosis between KFD and SLE needs high suspicion and a good understanding of both pathologies. This case report presents the case of a female patient presenting with bilateral submandibular adenopathy, right palpebral nodule, weight loss, night fever, node biopsy with histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, and antinuclear antibodies 1:320 with speckled pattern (AC- 4) and positive anti-Sm and anti-nRNP/Sm.
