Özet

Intracranial and intraspinal involvement is a rare complication of Hodgkin's lymphoma. Intracranial involvement is observed in 0.2 to 0.5 percent of patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma. No specific risk factors associated with intracranial involvement have been found. We report intracranial involvement of Hodgkin's lymphoma in a patient who had previously undergone thyroidectomy due to thyroid papillary carcinoma.
