Abstract

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) usually presents as nodal disease and may involve extranodal sites during the progression of the disease. Here we report a unusual case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) in an otherwise healthy 26 year old young male who came to the Pulmonology OPD with heaviness in the chest . An ultrasound shows mediastinal enlargement. The diagnosis of Hodgkin’s lymphoma was made on a trucut biopsy of mediastinal swelling.
