  • The case of a patient with an unusual skin disorder--progressive, atrophying, chronic, granulomatous dermohypodermitis (PACGD)--who developed Hodgkin's disease is reported. A review of the literature revealed only two other cases of PACGD, one of which affected a patient who also was found to have Hodgkin's disease. In an additional report, the diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease was made in a patient who may have had the same dermatologic disorder. The case is reported because the association of these two rare diseases is believed to be more than a chance event.
