Abstract

The presentation of intracranial metastases from Hodgkin's lymphoma is an infrequent event that worsens clinical outcome. A case of Hodgkin's lymphoma relapse in the cerebellum is described in a 70-year-old woman with a previously treated stage IVA Hodgkin's lymphoma. Diagnostic workup and treatment strategies for central nervous system relapses are reviewed and discussed. A combination of surgery, radiotherapy and occasionally chemotherapy remains the most appropriate approach to intracranial Hodgkin's lymphoma.
