A 22-year-old man presented with a 2-week history of abdominal pain, fatigue, fever, and night sweats. Enlarged neck and paraaortic lymph nodes were noted, but no testicular lesions were found using imaging tools. Pathology revealed poorly differentiated embryonal carcinoma (EC) of the metastatic neck lymph node. The patient presented with clinical symptoms similar to Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), but the final diagnosis was advanced-stage extragonadal EC. To our knowledge, this is a rare case report of EC presenting as classic HL.
