Concomitant presentation of TB and lymphoma is a rare entity. We described a 9-year-old boy with multiple lymphadenopathy on neck and armpits that initially diagnosed with clinical tuberculosis. Diagnostic workup by lymph node biopsy was in accordance with tuberculous lymphadenitis. Antituberculosis medication was given for 9 months without improvement of clinical manifestation. Biopsy examination was done for evaluation of therapy and revealed mixed cellularity Hodgkin lymphoma. Chest multi sliced computed tomography scan with contrast revealed paraesophageal lymphoma. Patient’s condition was deteriorated due to self-decline of chemotherapy. Patient was planned to initiate chemotherapy after the condition stabilized.
