Chest wall tumors in the pediatric population can have a variety of etiologies, malignancy being the most worrisome. Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) rarely presents as a chest wall mass in the pediatric population. In this report, we describe 3 male pediatric patients, all of whom had chest wall masses present at the initial diagnosis of HL. We also discuss the literature on this topic. We conclude that malignancy and, more specifically, HL should always be considered when evaluating a pediatric patient who presents with a chest wall mass.
