Hum Pathol. 1982 Jun;13(6):592-5. doi: 10.1016/s0046-8177(82)80278-5.


A case of eosinophilic granuloma involving bone and lung in a patient with Hodgkin disease is reported. The lesion appeared several months after the patient had completed a course of chemotherapy. The single bony lesion was resected and the pulmonary lesions disappeared spontaneously. The occurrence of eosinophilic granuloma in a patient with Hodgkin disease has rarely been reported.
