Prognostic Factors in Childhood and Adolescent Hodgkin Lymphoma
Although prognostic factors will continue to change because of risk stratification and choice of therapy, parameters such as disease stage, bulk, systemic symptomatology, and early response to chemotherapy are likely to remain relevant to outcome. Nonetheless, as therapy becomes increasingly tailored to prognostic factors and therapeutic response, overall outcome should become less affected by these parameters.
