Abstract

The possibility of finding osteitis deformans and Hodgkin's disease simultaneously in the same bone is illustrated in this case history of a 62-year-old man. Pain, persisting more than two weeks after an injury to the left knee, led to the discovery of osteitis deformans in the left tibia, and biopsy of an enlarged inguinal lymph node revealed malignant lymphoma. The patient died about four months after his admission to the hospital. At autopsy Hodgkin's disease was found in kidneys, spleen, liver, pancreas, thyroid, testes, and prostate; in addition it was found in the left tibia, sometimes in the same histological sections with areas of typical osteitis deformans.
