We report the case of an 81-year-old man who underwent a segmental resection of the sigmoid colon for severe diverticular disease. Histopathologic diagnosis revealed extranodal Hodgkin's disease, and the diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemistry. The incidence of extranodal Hodgkin's disease is rare and represents an infrequent occurrence as a gastrointestinal neoplasm and primary gastrointestinal lymphoma. A review of the literature for gastrointestinal lymphomas with emphasis on the occurrence of Hodgkin's disease, the diagnostic features, and the site of gastrointestinal tract involvement is reported.
