abstract

  • Endobronchial presentation of Hodgkin lymphoma is rare and can be confused clinically and radiographically with pulmonary small cell carcinoma. We present a case of an obstructive endobronchial presentation of nodular sclerosing classic Hodgkin lymphoma, initially misdiagnosed as small cell carcinoma, with endobronchial vasculitis and associated hemoptysis. Photodynamic therapy relieved the obstruction before induction of tumor-specific therapy. This case demonstrates the successful use of photodynamic therapy in obstructive endobronchial Hodgkin lymphoma.
