Primary pulmonary Hodgkin lymphoma (PPHL) is a rare entity. Most reported cases occurred before the availability of PET scan for accurate staging of the disease. We report a case of PPHL for which PET/CT scan was used and surgery was performed to confirm the diagnosis. A review of cases of PPHL since 1990 suggests that adjuvant chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy after surgical resection of the lung lesions achieve better disease control than surgical resection alone.
