Fulminant hepatic disease has an aggressive nature with a high mortality rate. Viral hepatitis is in the first place among its causes. Other than this, liver failure may rarely occur in lymphoma patients. The prevalence of liver failure in Hodgkin’s lymphoma is lower than that of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In this report, we present a 44-year-old male patient with liver failure who was diagnosed as Hodgkin lymphoma during the postmortem examination.
