Long ago, it was the author’s privilege to contribute a 5-paged historical account on Hodgkin. Recently, my contribution concerned also a medicolegal case reported by that great man. Therefore, it was of interest to come across in my home country, Nigeria, recent reports on lymphoma. Accordingly, let me contribute two medico-legal examples from my own people, the Igbos or Ibos. Both specimens happened to have been submitted to me at a Regional Pathology Laboratory which I headed personally, the senders being missionary doctors working in a hinterland hospital. What necessarily follows is the establishment of an effective oncology policy with the active collaboration of voluntary agencies.
