In this letter, we consider a cognitive radio based multihop network under the spectrum sharing underlay paradigm. By taking into account the interference constraints, we present an exact closed-form expression for outage probability, which is valid for the whole signal-to-noise ratio regime. In addition, some numerical examples of interest that study the effect of the number of hops and/or the interferer threshold on primary users are illustrated and discussed. Numerical results show that multihop systems still offer a considerable gain as compared to direct transmission under the same limit of interference.
