Post-mortem findings in Ugandans with Hodgkin's disease.

Abstract

The necropsy findings in 36 Ugandan patients with Hodgkin's disease are presented. One third of the patients were under the age of 20 years. Most cases showed a lymphocyte depleted tumour pattern. Infective complications were extremely unusual, probably because of the short survival time. Treated patients showed a slightly higher incidence of infective disease than those untreated. Death was a result of widespread tumour which usually showed involvement of many lymph nodes and the liver and spleen.
