Abstract

A 47-year-old White woman presented with intractable pruritus. Systemic examination was completely negative. Radiological examination of the chest revealed a large mass which was removed surgically. Histologically, it had the features of nodular sclerosing Hodgkin's disease arising in the thymus. The pruritus paralleled the patient's disease activity and is an important skin marker of neoplasia.
