Abstract Massive involvement of the skin by a lymphoma occurs infrequently. The following patient is reported because of this interesting manifestation of the disease. Report of a Case A 68-year-old white man was admitted to the hospital on July 30, 1956, with a massive lesion of the face of three weeks' duration and dysphagia of one week's duration. An unknown new growth had been excised from the lower lip about eight years previously. A similar tumor was removed from the same region about four years previously. About two months before admission, a small lesion appeared on the right cheek. The patient was admitted to another hospital, where a biopsy revealed Hodgkin's disease. After a course of mechlorethamine hydrochloride (nitrogen mustard) was given intravenously, he was discharged. Rapid growth of the neoplasm followed. The patient was pale, emaciated, cachetic, and alert. A large nodular lesion covered the right side References 1. Keim, H. L.: The Lymphoblastomas: Their Interrelationships , Arch.
