The definitive text on Hodgkin lymphoma is now in its thoroughly revised, updated Second Edition. More than 100 recognized authorities from all parts of the world provide comprehensive, current information on every aspect of Hodgkin lymphoma, including etiology, epidemiology, biology, pathology, evaluation, staging, treatment, and follow-up.

This edition describes the increased use of PET scanning in staging and follow-up. Chapters discuss current treatment options—including combination chemotherapy, radiation therapy, novel treatment techniques, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation—and offer guidelines for treatment selection. Full consideration is given to late effects of therapy and clinical trials for assessing quality of life in patients.
