Abstract

Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is one of the commonly encountered lymphomas in childhood. Most of the children present with lymphadenopathy. A rare subset of children do present with constellation of atypical symptoms as paraneoplastic syndromes. We hereby present an 11-year-old boy with classical Hodgkin’s Lymphoma associated with Alopecia areata and demyelination as paraneoplastic manifestations. Both these paraneoplastic manifestations improved after initiating chemotherapy (ABVD regimen). A high index of suspicion for underlying malignancy would help clinicians in clinching an early diagnosis and would avert the associated complications.
