H odgkin’s disease was recently designated Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in the World Health Organization Classification. The National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) population based registries estimate that 7900 new cases are diagnosed annually in the USA. Clues to its aetiology have been suggested by the bimodal age distribution; higher risks in males, in people with higher socioeconomic status, and in smaller families; and occurrence of Epstein-Barr virus in HL… CONTINUE READING
