Epidemiological evidence for the two-disease hypothesis in Hodgkin's disease.
This study relates to 1803 newly diagnosed cases of Hodgkin's Disease (HD) registered between 1984 and 1988 by a specialist leukaemia-lymphoma registry covering approximately half of England and Wales.
In addition to registration data the analyses use routine census data.
Rye classification is available for the majority of cases with only 7% being unclassified.
The data confirm that the young adult peak in HD occurrence is attributable to the nodular sclerosing subtype (NS), and there is some evidence that NS has a different geographical distribution by county to the other Rye subtypes.
