Abstract

Enlargement of periaortic nodes with multiple small filling defects on lymphangiography in a patient with history of low grade fever, weight loss, night sweats and general malaise, strongly suggests the possibility of retroperitoneal Hodgkin's disease if an infectious, chronic granulomatous disease can be excluded. In the patient reported here, the final histolo­gical diagnosis was a quite unusual one: thorotrast granuloma.
