During the past decades, there have been reports of increases in the incidence and mortality rates due to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in many parts of the world.
The risk factors responsible for the increasing incidence are largely unknown.
This study provided an overview of the incidence pattern of NHL in Connecticut and generated hypotheses for additional investigation.
This study was based on all the NHL cases reported to the Connecticut Tumor Registry (CTR) between 1935 and 1988.
Crude, age-adjusted, and age-specific incidence rates of NHL were calculated for each sex.
