abstract

  • Most patients with Hodgkin's disease will present with painless lymphadenopathy; 50% will have some degree of mediastinal involvement. Diagnosis is made on finding Reed-Sternberg cells or atypical reticulum cells. Accurate staging is crucial and should be done jointly by medical and radiation oncologists. Treatment is by radiation or chemotherapy, or combinations of the two. Cure rates are high.
