A 56‐year‐old man who 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.
