Hodgkin lymphoma most often spreads through the lymph vessels from lymph node to lymph node.

Renal involvement is extremely rare, with HD being rather perirenal and with radiologic appearance often consisting of invasion of the perirenal space by HD without renal parenchymal involvement [ 5 ]. Suspicion of neoplasm or specific infection is limited to patients with larger nodes, nodes in other locations, or large clusters of smaller nodes.

Non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphomas frequently involve many structures in the abdomen and pelvis.
