Objective: An unusual "soap bubble" sign of bone in 9 patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HD) were reviewed, in order to improve the knowledge of X-ray differential diagnosis. Materials and Methods: From 1959 to 1995, there were 32 HD patients with bone involvement, 9 patients (28. 12% ), had "soap bubble" sign. The age ranged from 14 to 65 years old. The subtypes of HD were nodular sclerosis in 5 cases, mixed cellular in 3 cases, lymphocytic predominance in 1 case. Bone lesions were solitary in 8 cases and multiple in 1 case. All had X-ray films of bone. Results: Lesions were found in sternum and iliac bone for 3 cases each, rib in 2 cases and radius in 1 case, with well-defined margins. 4 cases had total or partial sclerotic rim, 9 cases had intalesional coarse or fine trabecullae, and 1 case had lacy-like peirosteal reactions. 5 cases had local soft tissue mass. After treatment, tumor decreased in size was found in 5 cases, thickening of sclerotic rim in 3 cases, thickening of intralesional trabecullae in 6 cases. Conclusion: "Soap bubble" sign of HD of bone might have some relationship with the histologic subtype. HD of bone should be included in the differential diagnosis consideration with "soap bubble" sign.
