• Hodgkin's disease can be manifested in ways other than lymphadenopathy. Two patients had symptoms related to thyroid enlargement and were initially believed to have Hashimoto's thyroiditis on the basis of markedly elevated thyroid antibody titers. Involvement of the thyroid region by Hodgkin's disease was eventually diagnosed.
