Abstract
Hodgkin’s disease is among the common diseases that affect the lymph nodes and can present as fever of unknown origin. However, its presentation with obstructive jaundice has been reported only rarely (1-4). Although it can present some times as a febrile illness (5), a cholestatic presentation with febrile illness is rare (6). We present a case here in which a patient developed prolonged fever with jaundice which had obstructive pattern and her final diagnosis was made at laparotomy. The obstructive jaundice was thought to be due to Hodgkin’s disease.

Key words: Hodgkindisease, lymphoma, cholestasis, jaundice
