Abstract

The occurrence of HIV associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a well recognized event. HIV associated Hodgkin's disease (HD) has also been observed. A unique patient with both entities is described. The patient was a 29 year old homosexual male who developed clinical IIA nodular sclerosis HD in 1985. He was HIV + with CD4/CD8 = 0.2 and his sister had HD 20 years earlier. He received MOPP and had a complete response. In October 1988 he developed weight loss with an abdominal mass and biopsy revealed diffuse small non-cleaved NHL, with bone marrow involvement. This was his first AIDS associated illness. Probes identified clonally rearranged DNA fragments in the J region of IgH chains and clonal rearrangements in the c-myc gene were also observed but EBV sequences could not be demonstrated. He was treated with m-BACOD but died in March 1989. His course was not complicated by opportunistic infection. Possible etiologies for the HD include his HIV status or shared sibling environment. The development of the NHL may have resulted from HIV infection and/or secondary to his treatment for HD. The relationship between the two lymphomas is uncertain and factors other than HIV exposure and its immune dysfunction may have been causal.
