Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL), accounts for ∼5% of all cases of Hodgkin lymphoma and is characterized by involvement of the peripheral lymph nodes. NLPHL occurs in young adults and is associated with frequent relapses. In 3% to 7% of cases, NLPHL progresses to a diffuse large B cell lymphoma. Furthermore, a proportion of NLPHL also have areas with features of T cell/histiocyte-rich large B cell lymphoma (THRLBCL), either at presentation or on follow-up. Here, we describe a 32-year-old man who presented to the emergency department with small bowel perforation. The resected small bowel showed full-thickness mural ulceration and involvement by a lymphoma with features of NLPHL that also had areas resembling THRLBCL. The patient had axillary lymphadenopathy, biopsy of which showed NLPHL with focal THRLBCL-like areas. Such a lymphoma presenting as small intestinal lesion/perforation has not been reported in the literature before. We take this opportunity to review the literature on extranodal presentations of NLPHL and discuss the natural history of this disease.
