Abstract

A patient with Stage IV-A nodular sclerosing Hodgkin's disease is described who, at initial presentation, demonstrated an apparent large filling defect in the spleen by 99mTc-sulfur colloid scan. Following a 6-month course of MOPP therapy, the patient was clinically free of disease although the spleen scan remained unchanged. After laparotomy, the spleen was found to be entirely normal histologically.
