Glomerulonephritis occurs in 1% of Hodgkin's lymphoma patients. In the even rarer setting of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, lymphoma may go unrecognized. We describe a case of necrotizing glomerulonephritis in which treatment with cyclophosphamide and steroids led to resolution of lymphadenopathy. Two years later, recrudescent lymphadenopathy was shown to be Hodgkin's lymphoma, but renal disease did not recur.
