Hodgkin’s Disease

  • Mario Campanacci


A discrete, terminal, and non apparent (on clinical and imaging basis) skeletal dissemination was frequently observed on autopsy in patients who died of Hodgkin’s disease. A patent osseous lesion is quite unusual and it only exceptionally constitutes the onset of the disease, being observed in the more advanced stages. There is predilection for the male sex, and for the ages from 20 to 40 (younger in comparison with lymphomas).
