Risk of second malignancies in patients with early-stage classical Hodgkin's lymphoma treated in a modern era.
Bottom Line: The study cohort included 8807 patients.Median follow-up for the entire cohort was 7.2 years (range: 0-22).Further studies, with longer follow-up of patients treated in the modern era are needed to confirm these findings.

Mentions: UVA revealed treatment in 2000 or later (P = 0.04), younger age at diagnosis (P < 0.001), and stage II (P < 0.01) were associated with improved FFSM (Table2). The 5 year FFSM for patients treated from 1988 to 1999 was 96.6% versus 97.1% for patients treated from 2000 to 2009, and 93.0% versus 95.1% at 10 years (P = 0.04) (Figure1). On multivariate analysis, treatment before 2000 (P = 0.02) and older age (36 years and older) (P < 0.01) was associated with a worse FFSM, with a trend toward worse FFSM for females (P = 0.08) (Table3).
