Extranodal presentations of Hodgkin's disease are relatively unusual, and the presentation of the disease as a thyroid mass is rare. The patient described here had an enlarging thyroid mass over a year and was treated for some months with levothyroxine sodium (Levothroid, Synthroid) suppressive therapy, with no results. Clinical staging after initial surgery revealed stage III(A2) Hodgkin's disease, and combination chemotherapy was immediately begun.
