Clitoromegaly and abdominal tumour as leading signs of a mediastinal non-Hodgkin lymphoma

Eur J Pediatr. 1987 Jan;146(1):70-1. doi: 10.1007/BF00647290.


A 2-year-old girl was admitted with clitoromegaly, mediastinal tumour and enlarged kidneys. A seventh cranial nerve palsy was associated with an increased cell count in cerebrospinal fluid. The diagnosis of a lymphoblastic lymphoma was confirmed by a cervical lymph-node biopsy. Six years after diagnosis and treatment according to the BFM protocol the girl remains in first complete remission.
