abstract

  • Intracranial Hodgkin's lymphoma (ICHL) in the HIV positive population is a rarely reported event with only three prior cases reported in the literature. In these prior reports, the outcome of the patients was uncertain or very poor. We report here the case of an HIV seropositive patient with an isolated intracranial recurrence of Hodgkin's Lymphoma (HL) who achieved long-term control of his cranial disease and continues to have a high performance status more than 3 years following treatment.
