Intracranial Hodgkin«SQ»s Disease is a rarity. It is usually seen with progressive, resistant and recurrent systemic disease. In the present case report, intracranial involvement was seen along with systemic disease as a primary presentation which is really rare. Combined modality approach with aggressive chemotherapy with cranial radiotherapy is the mode of treatment advised in these patients which is found to be useful. The intention of the treatment should be cure and not only palliation in these patients.
