A retrospective review of all British Army patients presenting to the Queen Elizabeth Military Hospital with a diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease between 1977 and 1987 was performed, with a minimum follow-up of 7 years.
The results were similar to those reported in other (similar) series, and the changes in investigations and treatment observed during this period matched those occurring in wider clinical practice through close co-operation with a recognised Cancer Centre.
Despite their comparative rarity, Army patients with Hodgkin's disease receive modern, effective treatment.
