Abstract

We present a case of systemic Hodgkin's lymphoma, relapsed with esophageal involvement after 3 years of complete remission. The importance of an accurate diagnostic work-up is emphasized. Esophagectomy and chemotherapy followed by bone marrow transplantation allowed a complete response and the long-term survival of the patient.
