    English abstract

    Febrile cholestatic liver disease is an extremely unusual presentation of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). The liver biopsy of a 40-year-old man with febrile episodes and cholestatic laboratory pattern disclosed an uncommon subtype of HL, a nodular lymphocyte-predominant HL (NLPHL). Liver involvement in the early stage of the usually indolent NLPHL's clinical course suggests an aggressiveness and unfavorable outcome. Emphasizing a liver biopsy early in the diagnostic algorithm enables accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Although rare, HL should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cholestasis.
