Hodgkin's disease involving the skin is an unusual occurrence and is found in 0.5-3.4 percent of these patients. The most common clinical presentation is of single or multiple dermal or subcutaneous nodules. The mechanisms usually implicated include direct extension from an underlying nodal focus, hematogenous dissemination, and, most often, retrograde lymphatic spread, distal to involved lymph nodes. We report the case of a patient with refractory Hodgkin's disease who presented with skin involvement.
