A case of retroperitoneal Hodgkin's disease with dysuria is reported. A 56-year-old man visited our hospital with the complaints of dysuria and lower abdominal mass. On physical examination, an unmovable hard smooth mass of fist size was palpable in the lower abdomen and prostate was slightly swelling by rectal digital examination. Excretory urography demonstrated medial deviation of left lower ureter and bladder deformity. Retrograde urethrocystography showed deviation and compression of prostatic urethra. On CT, tumors were composed of several round masses, which surrounded the left common iliac artery on angiography. Surgical extirpation was carried out and histological examination revealed Hodgkin's disease. As postoperative treatment, chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine and prednisolone was performed, and 30 months after the operation the patient was asymptomatic.
