Abstract

Hodgkin's lymphoma is a very common haematological neoplasm with high possibilities of response to treatment.On the other hand, therapies are often responsible for clinically relevant complications. Among these is osteonecrosis,generally determined by the high dosages of corticosteroids included in the chemotherapeutic protocols, which leadto bone ischemia through multifactorial mechanisms such as hypercoagulability and increaseof intraosseous pressure due to hyperplasia of the adipose component.We report the case of a 29-year-old man with resistant Hodgkin's lymphoma undergoing chemotherapywhich determined the appearance of multifocal osteonecrosis detected by Magnetic Resonancewhole body.
