We report a rare case of a patient who developed Hodgkin Lymphoma following the treatment of Non Hodgkin lymphoma. It is well known that the risk of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is increased significantly after treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. However, an increased risk of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma following treatment of NHL has not been commonly noted in several large cancer registry. It is very important to study the transformation of lymphomas and their interrelationship to decrease the morbidity and mortality and fastest cure of the patients.
