Hodgkin lymphoma classically presents as lymphadenopathy with contiguous spread with or without associated B symptoms including night sweats, weight loss, and fever. With timely diagnosis and treatment, this is a potentially curable disease. This report describes a unique case of Hodgkin lymphoma that presented with localized back pain without overt evidence of lymph node involvement. This nonclassic presentation offers a diagnostic challenge that emphasizes the importance of keeping a broad differential in an adolescent or young adult patient with lytic bone lesions.
