Black-white differences in Hodgkin's disease (HD) occurrence have been reported in older US mortality statistics and in limited international data, suggesting either genetic or socioeconomic determinants of susceptibility.
However, there has been no evaluation with reliable data of the interracial incidence patterns by age, sex, and histologic subtype, that are prerequisite to understanding the causes of such variation.
This project utilized 15 years of recent, high quality, incidence data from well-defined black and white US populations to calculate age-, sex-, and histology-specific rates of HD by race over time.
Rates were somewhat lower for blacks than whites of both sexes, except among young boys.
