This case report describes a patient who presented with Stage IV B Hodgkin's disease and autoimmune thrombocytopenia. Prior to the institution of therapy the presence of platelet‐associated IgG was documented. When the patient was treated with steroids and chemotherapy, the thrombocytopenia resolved and platelet‐associated IgG disappeared. Splenectomy alone did not correct the thrombocytopenia. The literature on Hodgkin's disease and autoimmune thrombocytopenia is reviewed.
