Abstract

Abstract Almost always, Hodgkin's lymphoma presents with lymph node involvement. Primary extranodal lymphoma is rare and mostly has a type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. We present an unusual presentation of a Hodgkin's lymphoma in a 33-year-old man. There were numerous soft tissue masses localized in the subcutaneous tissue of the left arm along the neurovascular bundle and the ipsilateral axillary region. We found only one Hodgkin's lymphoma case that presented as an upper extremity mass reported in the literature. In cases where a great number of successively lined up soft tissue masses are detected on the extremity, lymphoma takes place among the differential diagnoses.
