To the editor: In a letter to the editor, Robert and Schneiderman (1) note that during the present epidemic of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, the occurrence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in homosexual men was reported (2); however, they could not find in the literature reports on Hodgkin's disease in the same population at risk for this syndrome. The letter includes the report of a case in which Hodgkin's disease occurred in a male homosexual drug addict who later developed severe opportunistic infections. After this letter, a collaborative study of six medical institutions was published, reporting on 90 cases
