A small percentage of patients treated for Hodgkin's disease are at risk of developing a second malignancy. The appearance of secondary malignancies such as leukemia, carcinoma or non-Hodgkin's lymphomas may be attributed to the mutagenic effects of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Most secondary non-Hodgkin's lymphomas are of the B-cell type, but isolated cases were reportedly of a T-cell lineage. A review of the literature pertaining to the development of secondary peripheral T-cell lymphomas is presented along with the description of an additional case. The latter developed in the tonsil and was diagnosed as a Lennert's lymphoma (lymphoepithelioid T cell lymphoma)on histological and immunological grounds. This report also reviews the development of a of peripheral T-cell lymphoma described in patients following chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy for Hodgkin's disease.
