HODGKIN'S DISEASE OF THE BONES.

LIEBERMAN, HERMAN S.
The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: October 1938
Case Report

This case presentation is of import chiefly because it shows that Hodgkin's disease with involvement of the osseous system is not a rare condition, and that its possibility must be borne in mind. It shows also that, because of the bizarre manifestations of the disease and the occasional absence of superficial gland involvement, diagnosis may be quite difficult.

Hodgkin's granuloma is primarily a disease of the reticulo-endothelial system, perhaps of an infectious origin, at times with secondary osseous invasions, resulting in either osteolytic or osteoblastic bone manifestations.
