Characterizing age-related differences in Hodgkin lymphoma in children, adolescents and young adults.

Current studies describing younger children with Hodgkin lymphoma are limited by geographical region, small sample sizes and variable age groups. Although published data is lacking, there appears to be a trend toward a higher male to female ratio and a higher proportion of mixed cellularity subtype when compared to older cohorts. We performed a retrospective multicenter study utilizing the Pediatric Health Information System® database to evaluate patients aged 0-39 years with Hodgkin lymphoma. We identified 3,034 unique patients who met inclusion criteria. Younger age groups had a larger proportion of males, Hispanic/Latino ethnicity, and mixed cellularity subtype. Treatment-related complications, including mucositis, pain, bacterial infections, and thrombosis, were documented more frequently in older cohorts. We also found significant age-related differences in medical management. This study is the largest study evaluating age-related differences in patients with Hodgkin lymphomaand the first study to evaluate for differences in complicationsand supportive care management.
