Two patients developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) six and ten years after radiotherapy and chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease nodular sclerosis type.
The histological classification of the developing NHL for the two patients was: IgG (K) secreting lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma of the stomach, and immunoblastic lymphoma of the cervical lymph nodes. Both patients responded well to conventional chemotherapy for NHL and are alive 22 and 5 months after the diagnosis of the secondary tumor.
Forty eight cases of NHL after treatment for HD have been previously reported. We present a review of the literature of these cases, adding to this literature the first reported case of gastric lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma under such circumstances.
