An association between nephrotic syndrome and extrarenal neoplasia was described for the first time in 1922. Since then a large number of cases have been published, few of them describing the link between Hodgkin disease (HD) and nephrotic syndrome (NS). It shows that the incidence of nephrotic syndrome in Hodgkin lymphoma is less than 1%. Till date, to the best of author's knowledge, there are about 50 pediatric cases published, no one among Italian children. In the present paper, the authors report 2 cases observed in their department in the 7 yrs period.
