Concurrence of multiple sclerosis and Hodgkin's disease.


Although multiple sclerosis and Hodgkin's disease are reported to have similar epidemiologic features, this is only the first case report in which there was concurrence of these diseases. Fourteen years after successful treatment of Hodgkin's disease, this 31-year-old white male developed multiple sclerosis. The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis was made on the basis of clinical and paraclinical findings that were characteristic of multiple sclerosis. In addition, specific tests were performed to rule out a variety of infectious, metabolic, and neoplastic diseases that simulate multiple sclerosis.
