Abstract / Description of output

A case of composite lymphoma consisting of Hodgkin's disease and B cell lymphocytic lymphoma is described. A diagnosis of lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin's disease was made initially by histology. The presence of a composite lymphoma was only appreciated once immunohistochemistry was available. The findings illustrate the importance of the use of immunological markers for the accurate diagnosis of lymphoma.
