Background: Hodgkin lymphoma involving rectum as primary lesion is very rare. Incidence rates of Hodgkin lymphoma have increased by 7-8 times in HIV patients when compared with the general population. The incidence has increased in the era of highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART). Only five cases of primary Hodgkin lymphoma of the rectum are reported in the literature. Case Report: We are presenting a case of primary Hodgkin lymphoma of the rectum in a HIV infected patient on HAART. Conclusion: Hodgkin lymphoma involving the rectum as a primary lesion is very rare and in HIV infected patients is much rarer. Hodgkin lymphoma should be kept in mind in an anorectal growth in HIV patients.
