Abstract

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (lymphosarcoma) in childhood is a complex topic which cannot be completely discussed in a short presentation. The following summary is based on a review of children treated in the last five years at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute in Houston, Texas. Before presenting this information it is important to review the problems and limitations encountered in any attempt to compare one institution’s data concerning the treatment of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in children with that of any other institution.
