MARQUEZ MEDINA, D. et al. Linfoma de Hodgkin con afectación ósea: comunicación de un caso y revisión de la literatura. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.3, pp.49-53. ISSN 0378-4835.

There are few literature reports about bone primary Hodgkin's lymphoma. Hodgkin's lymphoma represents less than 0.15 % of the primary malignant bone tumors, although radiology studies frequently detect bone lesions in patients with Hodgkin's disease. We report the case of a patient that was initially diagnosed of bone Hodgkin's lymphoma with left femur involvement. The patient was treated by a combined regime of sequential chemo-radiotherapy in our Oncology Unit. He remains relapse-free three years after diagnosis. Taking advantage of our report we reviewed the literature looking for diagnostic and treatment strategies for the process.

Keywords : Hodgkin's lymphoma; Osseous involvement; Chemotherapy; Radiotherapy.
