Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited disorder of hemoglobin mutation in red blood cells, with a patient population that is increasing in age in recent decades due to advances in modern medicine. Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is a cancer of white blood cells, and while concomitance of SCD and Hodgkin's has been reported, a discussion of treatment for HL in SCD is lacking from the literature. We present a case of effectively treated HL in SCD and put forth that the regimen used is a practical choice, and as it was completed fully as outpatient, it improved the patient's quality of life compared to an inpatient regimen.
