Abstract

A clinical comparison of the nodular and diffuse variants of lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's disease (HD-LP) has shown them to be similar in all respects, including survival and relapse-free survival (RFS). In addition, they appear similar to mixed cellularity (MC) and nodular sclerosing Hodgkin's disease (HD-NS) with regard to clinical course. Thus, the reported phenotypic differences between nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin's disease (HD-LP[N]) and other forms of the disease do not appear to be reflected in clinical behavior.
