Dimensions of Malignant Lymphomatous Transformation in Immunodeficiency
Pp. 63-64 (2)
Lawrence M. Agius
Relative dimensions of malignant lymphoma incidence in cases of congenital or acquired
immunodeficiency constitute a critical reappraisal of the status of the susceptibility traits for
occurrence and progression of monoclonal groups of malignant lymphocytes. The constitutive relative
incidence of Epstein-Barr virus and even of Burkitt’s lymphoma in patients with AIDS contrasts and
also compares with incidences in the various subtypes of organ transplant patients and of patients with
ataxia telangiectasia and Wiskott Aldrich syndrome.
