Abstract

The majority of newly diagnosed patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma are expected to survive because of effective therapies established during the last 40 years. Long-term observations from large populations of treated patients have disclosed a variety of late effects of the disease and its therapy that have contributed morbidity and excess mortality to Hodgkin's lymphoma survivors. As such complications have been recognized treatment approaches have been modified. Here we report a case of cervical neuropathy secondary to mantle radiotherapy, a complication not previously reported in the literature.
