Classic Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a lymphoid neoplasm most often affecting the lymph nodes of the cervical region (75%), followed by mediastinal, axillary, and para-aortic areas. Extranodal involvement is much less common in HL. We present an extremely rare case of classic HL (CHL) with involvement of the spleen, stomach, and pancreas and perigastric, mesenteric, and para-aortic lymph nodes without peripheral lymphadenopathy, in a 54-year-old male, which clinicoradiologically mimicked a carcinoma. An extensive English literature search did not reveal any case of CHL involving the spleen, stomach, and pancreas simultaneously.
