Ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (US-FNAC) is a well-established procedure performed to establish the diagnosis of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD). Ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy (US-CNB) is an alternative diagnostic tool for KFD. However, the efficacy of US-CNB is not well evaluated. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of US-CNB and compare it with that of US-FNAC in the diagnosis of KFD.
