Abstract:   (144 Views)
Background: Given that Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) accounts for 5%–6% of pediatric malignancies, we investigated the clinical characteristics and survival of pediatric patients with HL in our center.
Materials and methods: In this cross sectional and retrospective study, the medical charts of all patients under the age of 18 diagnosed with HL from 2006 to 2016 at Shahid Sadoughi Hospital Yazd, Iran, were retrieved. Data were analyzed by SPSS (version 18) using K square and T-Test. Survival was analyzed using Kaplan-Meier estimates, and multivariate analysis was performed using the Cox regression method.
Results: This study included 34 patients. In terms of gender, there were 20 boys and 14 girls in this study. The mean age of the patients was 10.42 years. The most common subtype of HL was mixed cellularity. Regarding disease stage, 55.9% of the patients were in stage I. All subtypes except for nodular sclerosis were more common in boys. The mean survival of patients in this study was 151.68 months. At the end of the study, there was just one death. The 5-year survival of patients was 100% and the 10-year survival was 94%. There was no significant relationship between survival and sex, histologic subtype, or the stage of the disease.
Conclusion: The results of the current study showed that majority of our patients had been diagnosed in a low stage and we achieved the best results for 5- and 10- year- overall survival through applied treatment.
