Özet

We report here the case of a 14-year-old boy with history of fever, weight loss, and mediastinal lymphadenopathy. The clinical symptoms and laboratory findings mimicking tuberculosis and sarcoidosis complicated the diagnostic process. He was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma after several X-rays, computed tomography, positron emission tomography-computed tomography, laboratory tests and three lymph node biopsy. Clinicians should be alerted on new lesions and symptoms in high risk patients and should repeat diagnostic tests and lymph node biopsies as indicated.
