Abstract

We reported the case of a patient with stage IV Hodgkin's disease (involving the nodes and Liver) presenting with paraneoplastic fever and who subsequently developed hypothermia during chemotherapy administration. We also reviewed the 12 other cases of hypothermia in Hodgkin's disease reported in the literature and discussed the most probable physiopathologic aetiologies.
