Lymphoma incidence in a Swedish county during 1969-1987.
The incidence of lymphoid malignancies (acute leukemias and myelomatosis excluded) during 1969-1987 in the County of Uppsala was calculated on the basis of the regional cancer register and local registers from the only oncological, hematological, dermatological and pathological departments in this well-defined geographical area.
Of the 774 patients included, 639 had histopathological specimens available, all of which were re-examined.
Seventy-nine patients were diagnosed on the basis of bone marrow investigations (>70% re-examined, all had a low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma=NHL) and 54 on fine-needle aspirated biopsies.
