Primary malignant lymphoma of spleen is rare with primary Hodgkin«SQ»s disease (HD) of spleen being rarer. The diagnosis of primary splenic HD is usually made on the histopathological examination of the splenectomy specimen. We report an interesting case of primary HD of spleen in a child emphasizing its rarity and the role of fine needle aspirate cytology in early diagnosis and non-surgical management of this entity.
