Lymphoma subtype incidence rates in children and adolescents
Cancer Epidemiology, 07/11/2012
de Oliveira Ferreira JM et al. – Higher social exclusion index (SEI) correlated with higher incidence of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), whereas rates of non–Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and Burkitt lymphoma (BL) did not correlate with SEI. Borderline different incidence rates were observed in HL correlated with cities with higher SEIs. Incidence rates of lymphomas in Brazil do not differ compared to rates reported worldwide, although SES differences deserve further investigation.
