Familial hairy cell leukemia (HCL) occurs rarely, and HCL occurring in association with other hematologic malignancies is even rarer. We describe two cases of familial HCL syndromes: a mother and son with HCL, and a HCL patient whose aunt developed Hodgkin's Disease (HD). This is the first reported familial association of HCL with HD.
