  1. Environmental pollution and malignant lymphomas : a tentative contribution to geographic pathology.

    Article - En anglais

    The present study reports of the geographic distribution of 2,878 cases of uniformly classified malignant lymphomas and of 2,349 similar cases from the literature.

    Data on histological entities are compared with the geographic and socio-economic characteristics of the regions where they preferentially occur.

    The results provide three patterns in lymphoma distribution: small cell lymphocytic lymphomas are frequent among populations of European extraction and in farming rather than industrial regions.

    Lymphomas derived from cells of the germinal center are seen preferentially in so-called « underdeveloped countries », and large cell (immunoblastic) lymphomas appear rather characteristic of industrial areas.
