Experiences from the National Danish Hodgkin's Study Group (LYGRA) with respect to diagnosis, classification and treatment of Hodgkin's disease.

Abstract

From September 1971 to April 1983, 1200 patients with newly diagnosed Hodgkin's disease were admitted to the centres which had founded LYGRA (the Danish Hodgkin's Study Group), to undergo uniform staging procedures and treatment. Present problems concerning staging, treatment, and complications, such as the risk of pneumococcal infection following splenectomy, the loss of fertility, and the risk of secondary malignancies, in particular leukaemia, are discussed.
