A case of erythroleukemia developing in a patient 6.5 years after therapy for Hodgkin's disease (HD) is described. The patient had chemotherapy alone for a stage III B lymphocyte-predominant HD. He received six cycles MOPP-induction therapy followed by a chlorambucil maintenance therapy with procarbazine and prednisone reinforcements. To our knowledge this is the first case of erythroleukemia following HD treated with chemotherapy alone.
