The involvement of breast tissue with Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) has been reported in very few cases up to date. We report a 33-year-old woman who had been treated and followed up with nodular sclerosing HL for 7 years, and admitted with recurrent disease. The fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) images revealed disseminated disease with the involvement of bilateral breast tissues showing FDG uptake. In this case, the breast involvement of HL was confirmed by histopathological results.
