Abstract

Primary extranodal location of Hodgkin lymphoma is uncommon. We present a case of a 43-year old man with isolated Hodgkin disease localized in the nasopharynx who presented with a complaint of bilateral nasal congestion. Primary location of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in the non-lymphoid tissue is very uncommon and the primary isolated involvement of the nasopharynx has been described in 35 cases in the worldwide literature.
