Abstract

Lymphomatoid granulomatosis is an angiocentric lymphoreticular proliferative disease. Some patients go on to develop frank neoplasia. The authors describe a patient who presented at the age of 12 years with pulmonary nodules and hepatosplenomegaly and was followed up for 6 years, and who subsequently developed lymphoma after cessation of therapy.
