Modern chemotherapy and radiation treatment of Hodgkin’s disease has resulted in overall cure rates in excess of 60%1 . However, the greatly improved survival rates have also led to increasing incidence of long-term side-effects of these treatment modalities2 . The most serious consequence is the occurrence of second cancer3 . We report a case of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma occurring in a patient who was previously treated for Hodgkin’s disease.
