Abstract

We report the case of a 36-year-old woman who presented with the clinical and histological features of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) 13 years after the diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease. The PAP preceded the recurrence of Hodgkin's disease in the lung by a few weeks. To the best of our knowledge this patient is the first documented case of recurrent Hodgkin's disease in the lung associated with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis.
