Abstract

A prospective clinical and histopathological study of 103 patients with lymphomas is reported. Of these, 72 (69.9%) had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and 31 (30.1%) had Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). The median age at presentation was 34 and 43 years for Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma respectively, which is lower than that seen in the West. Fever and superficial lymphadenopathy were the commonest presenting features and 'B' symptoms were present in over 60% of both groups. Seventy-five per cent of NHL and 64.5% of HL presented in stages III and IV of the disease.
