BACKGROUND: A number of cases of non Hodgkin's lymphoma of the appendix have been described, but Hodgkin's lymphoma is extremely rare. To our knowledge there are only two reports up to 1966 and none since then. METHOD: We report a case of a 65-year-old gentleman who was treated for suspected Crohn's disease. He failed to respond to medical treatment and underwent right haemicolectomy. The resected segment of bowel demonstrated classical Hodgkin's disease originating in the appendix. He recovered well from the operation and responded well to postoperative chemotherapy. CONCLUSION: Hodgkin's lymphoma of appendix is extremely rare. This case demonstrates the significance of repeated clinical evaluation of patients particularly in the absence of expected response to therapy.
