abstract

  • Malignant lymphoma of the prostate is an unusual entity, and nonHodgkin's lymphoma constitutes most reported cases. We report a well documented case of Hodgkin's lymphoma, initially involving the gastrointestinal tract and spleen, which recurred in the prostate following initial remission with chemotherapy. Treatment with external beam radiotherapy resulted in a rapid complete response that has been sustained for 18 months.
