  1. Epstein-Barr virus in Hodgkin disease : relation to age and subtype.

    Article - En anglais


    Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been assosiated with Hodgkin disease (HD), but its relationship to the age of the patients and the histologic subtype is not well defined.

    The possibility that other lymphotropic herpesviruses, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and human herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6) could by involved in the pathogenesis of HD is also unclear.


    Parafffin-embedded material from 77 cases of HD was studied.

    This consisted of 24 specimens from children (mean age, 11.4 years), 36 from young adults (mean age, 28.8 years), and 17 from older adults (mean age, 53.8 years).
