Abstract We report the case of a man in which a Hodgkin's lymphoma involved the ureter as the very first clinical situs of the disease. Ureteral involvement in lymphomas is very rare (0.86 %–7 % and 1 %–16 %, found in two studies, respectively, of cases of patients with lymphoma examined post mortem) and when it does occur it is secondary to renal involvement or retroperitoneal adenopathies. It is by all means exceptional as an isolated situs of disease. Those cases reported in the literature as presenting lymphomatous involvement of the ureter have always been diagnosed as Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
