Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

  • J. M. Shammo

Approximately 7000-8000 new cases of Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) occur annually in the United States. HL is less common in African-Americans compared to Caucasians (1.6 vs 2.9 cases per 100,000, respectively). HL is a diagnosis made more often in men, with a male to female ratio of 4:3. Its age-specific incidence has been repeatedly reported as bimodal, with the greatest pool in the third decade of life and a second, smaller pool in the fifth and sixth decades. It accounts for 12% of malignant lymphomas and 0.6% of all malignancies in the United States [1].
