Author information

Department of Pathology, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, Karnataka, India.


A 30-year-old lady presented with fever, dry cough and weight loss for the preceding five months. Radiological investigations revealed a solitary nodular lesion in the lingula of the left lung. Guided fine needle aspiration cytology failed to yield any diagnostic material. Bronchoscopic cytology was also not contributory. As a last resort open lung biopsy was done and a diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease was made. Hilar and pre aortic lymph node biopsies showed only reactive change. The final diagnosis was primary pulmonary Hodgkin's disease.
