A 39-year-old female was admitted with three large suprasternal, supraclavicular and pre-sternal ulcers with undermined borders, as well as two firm suppurative nodules on the left side of neck and axilla [Figure 1]. She complained of disabling dysphagia. Two years earlier, she had presented with cervical and mediastinal lymphadenopathy and was diagnosed with nodular sclerosing Hodgkin lymphoma, for which she had repeatedly refused treatment. Histopathological examination of a biopsy specimen confirmed cutaneous involvement by Hodgkin lymphoma. Imaging studies revealed fistulization to the esophagus and pulmonary extension by contiguity. The patient was started on chemotherapy with brentuximab, doxorubicin, vinblastine and dacarbazine with gradual clinical improvement.
