Abstract

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system. We report the case of a man with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and cardiomyopathy, for which the dilemma was whether to use the standard protocol − putting the patient at risk of worsening of heart failure, but giving him a good chance of full recovery − or not. The standard protocol was given and the patient made a full recovery without cardiac complications.

Keywords

Hodgkin’s lymphoma; cardiomyopathy; comorbidity; ataxia; heart failure
