Light micrographs of sections of a normal, healthy lymph node (on left), and a lymph node affected by nodular sclerosing pattern Hodgkin's disease (on right). Hodgkin's disease, or Hodgkin's lymphoma, is a malignant (cancerous) tumor (neoplasm) that develops in the lymphoreticular system. There are four histological forms of the disease each with a different prognosis and level of aggression. This form results in the deposition of irregular bands of fibrous tissue and gives a nodular appearance to the node. It is associated with a good prognosis if diagnosed at an early stage.
