A child with Down's syndrome developed Hodgkin's sarcoma. Chromosomal analysis of an involved node demonstrated that the trisomy was of the 21-22 group, and the lymph node cells contained a number of chromosomal breaks and fragments. This case is another example of the association between Down's syndrome and the development of lymphoreticular malignancies.
