Abstract

The case of a patient with pathologic Stage 1A Hodgkin disease is reported in whom subacute paraneoplastic myelopathy developed before treatment. Myelography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and lumbar puncture examination showed no evidence of central nervous system involvement. The patient was treated with combination chemotherapy (to avoid spinal cord exposure to radiation) without neurologic improvement. The patient's neurologic condition responded well to intrathecal dexamethasone.
