Abstract

A 56-year-old man had easy bruising, an enlarged left supraclavicular lymph node, and splenomegaly was diagnosed as having hairy-cell leukemia. Treatment consisted of splenectomy. Because of progressive lymphadenopathy in the following months, the patient required reevaluation. Examination of a lymph node biopsy specimen now revealed Hodgkin's disease, nodular sclerosis. This is the first pathologically confirmed case of hairy-cell leukemia coexisting with Hodgkin's disease.
