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.
Keywords: lymphoma, dimensions, immunodeficiency.
