Cutaneous Manifestations of Hodgkin’s Disease
Excellent, detailed reviews of cutaneous lesions in Hodgkin’s disease are given by Bluefarb  and Smithers : 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 . 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.
