Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is a malignancy that is typically B-cell in origin. HL can be further classified into classical HL and nodular lymphocyte-predominant HL (NLPHL). NLPHL is a rare lymphoma. It commonly presents locally with palpable firm lymphadenopathy or mediastinal mass seen on chest imaging. Some patients may have B symptoms (fever, night sweats, and unintentional weight loss), splenomegaly, and hepatomegaly. We describe a case of NLPHL in a 32-year-old male with classical findings of this rare class of HL.
