Abstract

A case of intracranial epidural Hodgkin's disease with calvarial involvement consisting of suture diastasis and superior sagittal sinus stenosis is presented. Previous authors have suggested that intracranial Hodgkin's disease is rare and cerebral symptoms are frequently due to factors other than intracranial involvement with tumor. With improved therapy of Hodgkin's disease and increase in patient longevity, perhaps this frequency of intracranial disease will be increased and this complication will be observed more often.
