Abstract

Purpose: To study the clinicopathological and therapeutic characteristics of elderly patients suffering from Hodgkin's disease. Patients and methods: We examined retrospectively the clinical data of 40 patients from 485 treated in our Department between 1970-1998 who were aged 65 or more at the date of the first presentation. Results: 8.2% of all patients were aged at the first presentation. Mixed cellularity was the most frequent histological subtype. The disease localisation in elderly was more frequntly inphradiaphragmatic and rarely mediastinal as compared with the younger patient population. The time elapsed from the first clinical sign to the diagnosis of the disease was double compared with the young patient population. Often the first treatment was inadequate in the elderly patients. This and the associated severe diseases were the cause for the disadvantageous treatment and whole survival results in this patient population. The symptom-free survival of the elderly patients treated successfully did not differ from the young patient population. Conclusion: The complete healing should be the final aim in the aged population as well, although we should take into consideration the status of the patient, the associated diseases and the survival not related with the Hodgkin's disease. It is important to emphasise the role of the search for effective and less toxic treatment strategies, of the frequent patient check and care activities, of the supportive therapy.
