Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) primarily presents as nodal disease and may involve extranodal sites during the progression of the disease. Extra nodal involvement of lung, gastrointestinal tract, testis and thyroid etc., is well-recognized in non-HL but clinically detectable soft tissue involvement is rare and quite exceptional with HL. We report here an unusual case of a young adult male, who presented with a frontal soft tissue mass associated with cervical lymph node. Histopathology supplemented with immunohistochemistry revealed classical HL. Patient did not respond to treatment adequately, and he developed intracranial metastasis during the course of treatment.
