Neurologic Complications of Hodgkin’s Disease and the Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphomas

  • Brian Patrick O’Neill


Lymphomas are malignant neoplasms of the hematopoietic system, specifically lymphocytes. They are a diverse group of disorders clinically, histologically, immunophenotypically, and genotypically that vary in their natural history, treatments, response to therapy, and survival rates. The most common and most prevalent subtypes in the United States are Hodgkin’ s disease (HD) and the non-Hodgkin’ s lymphomas (NHL). These two forms will be the foci of this chapter.
