Abstract

Excellent, detailed reviews of cutaneous lesions in Hodgkin’s disease are given by Bluefarb [62] and Smithers [666]: They are said to occur in 10%–50% of patients with Hodgkin’s disease. The most common nonspecific cutaneous manifestations are pruritus, prurigo-like lesions, and herpes zoster, which develop in at least about 15% of these patients [250]. In addition to these, many other lesions and conditions may be found [62, 666]: pallor, hyperpigmentation, ichthyosis, pityriasis rubra pilaris, urticaria, erythema nodosum, dermatomyositis, bullous and pemphigoid lesions, purpuric lesions, phlebitis, and lymph edema from obstruction of normal lymph flow by enlarged nodes.
