Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) as a malignant tumor presents with lymphadenopathy and systemic complaints. The origin of this tumor is mostly suggested to be B lymphocytes. There is a close relationship between autoimmunity and HL, but the mechanism of this immune syndromes is unclear. Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is the most common autoimmune syndrome which may present before, at the same time, and even after treatment of the HL. We present a case of ITP as a primary sign of relapse of HL in a 15-year-old boy after complete treatment of HL.
