We report an unusual case of mixed cellularity classical Hodgkin's lymphoma with prominent involvement of the base of the tongue at diagnosis. In situ hybridization findings for Epstein-Barr virus were positive. Waldeyer's ring involvement by Hodgkin's lymphoma is uncommon with < 200 cases reported in the English literature and only 5 previous reports of Hodgkin's lymphoma involving the tongue.
