    Abstract

    Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome (VKHS) is a well-documented clinical entity. We report the case of a 24 year old man who, within 5 months of the diagnosis of VKHS, developed Hodgkin's disease. Like VKHS, the aetiology of Hodgkin's disease is unknown. A viral factor has been suspected in the pathogenesis of both conditions. Similar immunological abnormalities have been described in both, and may be important predisposing factors.
