[Gastric adenocarcinoma secondary to Hodgkin's disease treatment].


UNLABELLED Second malignant neoplasms are a major cause of late morbidity and mortality following treatment for Hodgkin's disease. Gastric carcinoma belong to the rare secondary malignancies induced by radiation-therapy and it is associated with a poor prognosis. We report a patient treated for Hodgkin's disease by 6 ABVD and total lymphoid radiation therapy, who developed a gastric carcinoma 9 years after completing treatment. Our case fits the criteria for radiation induced malignancies reported from the literature: IN CONCLUSION recommendations are presented for both prevention and early detection of the tumours we recommend a strict follow-up for patients treated for HD to detect second cancers.
