Hodgkin's disease is now curable in more than 50% of cases, due to its chemo- and radio-sensitivity. However, treatment exposes to a risk of secondary cancer varying from 1 to 10% depending on chemoradiotherapy doses and schedules. We report a case of secondary breast cancer associated with a secondary thyroid cancer observed in a 24-year-old man treated when he was 13 years old by vinblastin and radiation for stage IIA, a Hodgkin's disease.
