Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as an acceptable treatment modality for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) who are deemed unsuitable for conventional surgical aortic valve replacement. TAVI not only provides the treatment of AS, but also makes some other diseases treatable by relieving hemodynamic distress resulting from AS. In this case report, we presented a 74-year-old patient with Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) that had been left untreated due to the development of acute pulmonary edema caused by severe degenerative AS during chemotherapy. This is the first report of the use of TAVI in a patient with HL.
