Abstract

Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is a neoplasm of the B lymphocytes. The histological picture may resemble granulomatous lesions similar to those seen in tuberculosis as collections of epitheloid cells are not uncommonly seen in HL. In areas which are endemic to tuberculosis, the close association and the coexistence of the two must be recognized for the proper diagnosis and treatment of the illness. A series of cases of Hodgkin's lymphoma is reported in which the biopsy specimens from different parts of the body portrayed caseating granulomatous lesions.
