Hodgkin's disease developed in a girl 8 years 9 months of age with the physical and hematologic stigmata of Chediak-Higashi syndrome. The association of malignant lymphoma with Chediak-Higashi syndrome has been reported previously, but to our knowledge, no case of Hodgkin's disease has been described to date.
