  1. The effect of ethnic differences on the pattern of HTLV-I-associated T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (HATL) in the United States.

    Article - En anglais

    Human T-cell lymphotropic virus Type I (HTLV-I) is the primary etiologic factor for adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL).

    Although HTLV-I is endemic in Japan and the Caribbean islands, the reported clinical and epidemiologic features of ATL in these 2 parts of the world are quite different.

    ATL has been diagnosed at a younger age and is reported more frequently as the lymphomatous type rather than the acute type with leukemia in the Caribbean basin as compared with the presentation in Japan.

    In order to characterize ATL in the United States, a registry has been established at the National Cancer Institute for the purpose of recording all cases originally diagnosed in the United States.
