Hodgkin's disease was described in 18321 but Sternberg2 was the first to accurately describe the pathologic changes in this disorder. Although cutaneous manifestations of Hodgkin's disease are found, according to Ziegler,3 in 25 per cent of all cases, according to Cole,4 in 40 per cent, and according to Miller,5 in 40 per cent, it was not until 1906 that Grosz6 published a report of the first case of lymphogranulomatous7 infiltration of the skin.
The cutaneous manifestations of Hodgkin's disease have been divided into two main groups, the nonspecific or the toxic eruptions (ides) and the specific or true lymphogranulomatous lesions.
The nonspecific or toxic eruptions are: (1) pruritus, with or without excoriations, pyodermias and lichenifications; (2) pigmentation; (3) prurigo-like eruptions; (4) bullous or pemphigoid lesions; (5) exfoliating erythrodermias; (6) purpuric lesions, scarlatiniform and morbilliform eruptions, urticaria and erythema nodosum-like eruptions. and (7) trophic
