Background and Aim: The commonest presentation in Hodgkin`s disease is painless cervical lymphadenopathy with or without a mediastinal mass. Uncommon presentations of Hodgkin`s disease that has been so far reported include: spinal cord compression, localized poikiloderma vascularis atrophicans, unilateral lower extremity lymphedema, multifocal nodular episcleritis and scleritis, Immune thrombocytopenia and hemolytic anemia, granolomatous keratoconjunctivitis, subdiaphragmatic Hodgkin`s disease. In these cases uncommon presentations were extramediastinal. Case Report: In this case Hodgkin’s disease presented with right lung middle lobe syndrome without hillar or mediastinal lymphadenopathy. CT guided needle biopsy of pulmonary lesion revealed Hodgkin`s disease and response to chemotherapy was very good. Conclusion: The typical presentation of pulmonary Hodgkin`s disease includes multiple, irregularly marginated pulmonary nodules in the hillar or mediastinal areas. Our case had an uncommon presentation of pulmonary Hodgkin`s disease. Therefore for early diagnosis and treatment, such presentations of the disease should be taken into consideration.
Keywords: Hodgkin`s disease, Right lung middle lobe syndrome, lymphadenopathy
