Abstract

Case: Shoulder pain is a common symptom. We report a case of a twenty-two-year-old man who had shoulder pain that was induced by small quantities of alcohol ingestion, which is an unusual presenting sign of Hodgkin lymphoma. The history, physical examination of the shoulder, and imaging revealed no noteworthy findings. Chest computed tomography and subsequent biopsy led to the diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma. Conclusion: This report emphasizes the need to consider Hodgkin lymphoma as part of the differential diagnosis in a patient presenting with shoulder pain that is precipitated by alcohol ingestion.
