• A case of Hodgkin's disease occurred with pulmonary Involvement as the Initial feature. The disease was initially seen clinically and roentgenographically as a diffuse pulmonary infiltrate. To our knowledge, the pattern of diffuse pneumonic involvement without intrathoracic lymphadenopathy at presentation has been reported only In one other case. Differentiation of this diffuse pneumonic pattern of primary pulmonary Hodgkin's disease from the more common pattern of a focal mass or infiltrate Is important in considering appropriate therapy.
