Abstract

Hodgkin's disease is a rare lymphoma usually diagnosed in adults presenting with painless lymphadenopathy. Treatment includes radiation therapy for early stages of the disease and chemotherapy for advanced stages. While the majority with Hodgkin's disease will be cured of their disease, patients must complete a period of therapy with risks of significant acute side effects and serious long-term complications. This article provides an overview of the natural history, diagnosis, and staging of Hodgkin's disease as well as a discussion about treatment modalities and associated complications.
